Learning Analytics - Whats Your First Step?

Learning Analytics - Whats Your First Step?

Optimizing learning environments to focus on how students learn and how instructors teach is a central goal of achieving student success through learning analytics. But when it comes to learning analytics, how do you determine whether your institution is ready? Is there a way to get started without committing a large amount of time and resources? Unicon has been conducting large-scale learning analytics projects (including pilots) for the past several years. In doing so, we have identified ways for institutions to get started by building a solid foundation, initiating conversations across campus, and acquiring expertise for future expansion. Come hear our stories on helping institutions get started with learning analytics. We will walk through the components included with Unicon’s new LA Quick Start service - from an open analytics infrastructure that integrates data from the Canvas LMS into a Learning Record Warehouse using the IMS Caliper standard, to the Student and Course "Pulse" Visualizations. We will also highlight a collaborative readiness assessment process, which provides institutions with a forum to identify concerns and challenge from both organizational and technical perspectives.

Empowering the Creation and Management of High-Quality Content - An invaluable aspect of achieving student success is to provide your learners with the highest quality and most engaging content available. Brigham Young University-Idaho (BYU-I) recognized this necessity and implemented a learning object repository (LOR) to facilitate the creation and management of high-quality content. A Learning Object Repository (LOR) frees content from imposed technological restrictions; facilitates both tagging and indexing for maximum content reuse; enables workflows to curate content; provides integration points into presentation layer applications, including the LMS; and supports federated searching. openEQUELLA is an open source LOR that is focused on enabling the adopter to customize nearly every part of the experience, ensuring that business needs are in the driver’s seat instead of the technology.
