While the term Learning Analytics has been around for some time, it has been mostly restricted to data collecting from the Learning Management Systems such as completions data. Learning analytics has to evolve beyond simply reporting to making predictions. We discuss current trends in Learning Analytics and how xAPI, Artificial Intelligence will impact Learning Analytics.
- Why Learning data needs from a reactive mode of collecting completion information to using predictive data to make Learning more effective.
- How xAPI and other emerging standards provide a platform for better analytics but have implementation challenges.
- The opportunities to link learning analytics with business outcomes.
- How Artificial Intelligence/ Machine Learning will demand better Learning Analytics.
Learning analytics refers to the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data about the progress of learners and the contexts in which learning takes place
