Learning Analytics: Readiness and Rewards
Friesen, Norm
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v39 n4 Fall 2013
This position paper introduces the relatively new field of learning analytics, first by considering the relevant meanings of both "learning" and "analytics," and then by looking at two main levels at which learning analytics can be or has been implemented in educational organizations. Although integrated turnkey systems or modules are not yet available for review, specific technologies for analyzing online student activities have been implemented and piloted. As a result, this paper concludes by advising an incremental approach to institutional preparedness.
