How Blackboard thinks about Analytics

There's value in data. It's our job to extract that value by transforming that raw data into helpful information. Dennis Witte (VP of Administration, Concordia University - Chicago), Kendall St. Haillaire (Virtual Campus Administrative Director, Indian River State College), and John Fritz (Asst VP for Instructional Technology, University of Maryland, Baltimore County) talk about how support from Blackboard Analytics has helped to improve the human decision-making process.

Kim Flintoff's insight:
The whole playlist covers several new dynamics emerging from improvements with the analytics and data handling... Blackboard Predict sounds interesting...

How I Learned to Stop Resenting Blackboard and Start Using BB Grader – ProfHacker - Blogs - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it
I’ve never been a fan of Blackboard, the monolithic learning management system that’s the standard at so many schools. I’ve always found it slow, poorly designed, and very awkward to use. Recently, however, my attitude changed (slightly) when a colleague introduced me to BB Grader, a free iPad app for Blackboard designed to make the grading process in Blackboard mobile-friendly.

Report: How Instructors Use the LMS Influences Student Interaction in Class -- Campus Technology | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it
A recent study by Blackboard examined how learning management system (LMS) use in courses influences student activity in the LMS as a kind of proxy for overall course design. More than half of courses (53 percent) were considered "supplemental," relying on the LMS as little more than a way to give students access to course materials, with a little bit of use of gradebook and announcement functionality. In that case the amount of time students spent interacting with the course was 15 hours on average with about 222 student interactions. On the opposite extreme were courses that spent the bulk of time delivering assessments through the LMS, among other activities. There, the average student class time spent in the LMS was nearly five times as long (70 hours), with an average of seven times more student interactions (1,596).

Better Student Planning on the Run -- Campus Technology

Better Student Planning on the Run -- Campus Technology | Blackboard Tips, Tricks and Guides for Higher Education | Scoop.it

This week, during Blackboard's user conference, BbWorld 16, the company is unveiling a pair of products developed with deep input from Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC). 


The first product, Bb Planner, is a mobile app that allows students to explore degrees and careers that mesh with their goals and interests. Eventually the same app will also enable them to pivot in their degree choices when they realize they're heading in the wrong direction, help them figure out how far along they are in achieving a degree in a new major and even let them sign up for their next course with a single phone tap. 


The second product, Blackboard Advise, is a web-based advising tool that pulls in Planner data and adds predictive analytics to help advisers understand a student's intentions and identify at-risk individuals.
