How Analytics Can Improve the Educational Experience

User data quickly highlights which students or groups of students may be struggling, and allows them to address those students’ needs.

The effective use of analytics can enable:

  • Improved student outcomes. Numbers and statistics can help determine the best course of action for an instructor, whether a certain concept needs to be retaught, or a certain student is struggling overall, a detailed report can show instructors where to put their efforts.
  • Higher quality instruction. Near real-time feedback can help instructors augment their learning based on student feedback.
  • Enhanced responsiveness to student needs and desires. By identifying challenges as they occur, instructors can intervene before it causes a student to fail. 

Analytics for Course Insights

With a comprehensive Visual Analytics dashboard, instructors and administrators can view: 

  • The number of videos and quizzes viewed
  • Total play length
  • Engagement metrics
  • A usage summary

Using the data, instructors can understand their classes at both a class and individual student level, including their participation, collaboration and where students might be struggling to understand a concept.
