Apereo Foundation

Type: Project

Apereo is a network of educational institutions supporting learning worldwide, chiefly through open/community source software, which grew out of the Sakai Foundation.

Apereo is doing significant work on learning analytics through its Learning Analytics Initiative, including work on the Open Academic Analytics Initiative (OAAI), on its Open Analytics Platform, and with the JISC Learning Analytics infrastructure:

"The Apereo Learning Analytics Initiative (LAI) aims to accelerate the operationalization of Learning Analytics software and frameworks, support the validation of analytics pilots across institutions, and work together so as to avoid duplication where possible.
Work is underway across the learning analytics domain to realize an open analytics infrastructure. Institutions and companies are partnering to build a solid learning analytics foundation, in order to enable institutions to ask and answer strategic questions about learners – and take action on those insights."
