JISC Effective learning analytics

Type: Project | Country:

JISC is a UK-based body that supports HE and other post-16 education institutions in the use of digital technologies. JISC's Effective Learning Analytics project is a significant initiative over two years to July 2016, with the goal of "helping further and higher education organisations to analyse and understand their data."

The aim is to "provide a set of basic learning analytics tools drawing from a range of data sources and using proven metrics", with pilot solutions and the commissioning of a basic learning analytics 'freemium' solution to build on.

Advice and guidance for the sector about learning analytics has been developed, including a review of the state of play in UK higher and further education in 2014, a literature review on the ethical and legal issues, and a Code of Practice for Learning Analytics.
