The world’s first national learning analytics service has been launched for the UK’s further and higher education sectors.
The technology, which has been developed by Jisc, uses real time and existing data to track student performance and activities.
The learning analytics service has been designed in partnership with universities and colleges in the UK and overseas. Jisc plans to continue this collaboration with users to make sure the service meets their changing needs.
A code of practice has been developed in partnership with the NUS [National Union of Students] to help institutions plan and implement analytics work – and the human interactions that result. This addresses any ethical concerns about capturing data for this purpose, by making sure that these activities take place with the informed consent and cooperation of students.
