Learning Analytics: the first release in a white paper series


Posted on Jun 19, 2012

The Center on Online Learning and Students with Disabilities has released a short white paper on Learning Analytics, available for free download here.

The report is definitely worth reading if you are interested in learning analytics and the entire world revolving around the collection and processing of student data that leads to instructional change or modification. The report makes the case that there are still many unanswered questions that researchers need to address.

Teachers have always made modifications to their instruction based on how students are progressing. This comes naturally to many educators. And just as the computer has helped teachers with grade books and keeping in contact with parents and guardians, technology may have the potential to help teachers see where students are struggling (in real time) based on a trail of data left during online instruction.

The Center plans to release a series of white papers around this subject.
