Learning Analytics

Is the practice of developing actionable insights through the collection and analysis of data about learners and their contexts, for purposes of understanding and optimising learning and teaching in the environments in which they occur.

The Learning Analytics Team aims to develop insights to conversation, establishment of best practice and inform decision making by administrative and academic staff as well as students.

We do this by:

  • Providing data and visualisations relating to programs, courses, assessments and student learning activity
  • Building data preparation workflows for analysis and automation of insights
  • Providing information and support on how to use data to enhance learning and teaching incourses and programs
  • Conducting ad-hoc analysis and the development of insightful information by integrating teaching and learning data from many systems and processes including MyUni, ECHO360, Library, PeopleSoft, Cognos BI, etc.
  • Exploring learning theory, tool and applications and provide advice on best practice
