X-Ray Learning Analytics

A positive learning experience is the result of high-quality instruction, excellence in course design, and engagement with other students within a learning community. But too often, instructors don’t find out that students are disengaged or struggling with course materials until it’s too late to make a difference. They are unclear about what works and what doesn’t, and have no way to assess the strength of online social networks created through their classes. Conventional LMS reports may provide information about online student activities, but they require significant analysis and interpretation to yield valuable insights, so they’re rarely acted upon.
