Educational data mining with Blackboard Intelligence

Bridge the divide

How can educators connect information on students’ classroom challenges with their progress in degree programs? How can data about what works for students inform high-quality instructional design? How can instructors get the information they need to identify and reach out to underperforming students before it’s too late? How can institutions use an education data warehouse to empower students to take personal responsibility for their learning? 

Analytics for Learn offers unparalleled access to current data about learning activities – enabling administrators, instructional designers, instructors, and students to align what happens in the classroom with the institution’s retention and graduation goals.
