Learning Analytics

The most widely cited definition of learning analytics that aligns with Newcastle University's approach is what Siemens and Gašević's describe as "the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data about students and their contexts to help institutions understand and optimise educational processes, learning and the environments in which it occurs."

With the increasing use of educational technology, there is a need for flexible education that supports students in achieving their learning objectives, and learning analytics can help support this.

More about learning analytics within the UK higher education contexts and elsewhere can be found on the JISC website.
