“analytics is predicated on “big data” but in education, big data will not exist until we sort out the current failure of interoperability”

By spotting patterns in the data produced by students’ online learning activity, learning analytics systems should be able to help:

  • predict student progress;
  • inform adaptive learning strategies (sequencing digital learning activities or recommending human interventions);
  • profile a student’s current capabilities;
  • automatically group students, depending on their learning needs;
  • identify the most effective learning strategies in different situations;
  • aggregate and present complex data in ways which helps administrators, teachers and students manage instructional processes.
