"DATA NOW STREAM from daily life: from phones and credit cards and televisions and computers; from the infrastructure of cities; from sensor-equipped buildings, trains, buses, planes, bridges, and factories. The data flow so fast that the total accumulation of the past two years—a zettabyte—dwarfs the prior record of human civilization. “There is a big data revolution,” saysWeatherhead University Professor Gary King. But it is not the quantity of data that is revolutionary. “The big data revolution is that now we can do something with the data.” "

Where is the field of learning analytics heading? Reflections from the Learning Analytics & Knowledge Conference – ASCILITE TELall Blog

As the field of learning analytics matures we are starting to see a shift in the way researchers and institutions are talking about learning analytics in the context of learning and teaching. From its roots in using student data to address retention, the field is expanding and becoming truly transdisciplinary – drawing on methodologies and analytics techniques from multiple disciplines. This provides exciting possibilities for new ways that learning analytics can be utilised in higher education.

Digital Capabilities in Higher Education, 2016 | EDUCAUSE

Technology is key to the future of higher education. Digital capabilities describe the application of technology to the core functions of an enterprise. Using data from EDUCAUSE Core Data Service maturity and deployment indices, the Digital Capabilities in Higher Education reports are designed to provide a view into the current status of digital capabilities within higher education.

Maturity indices measure the capability to deliver IT services and applications in a given area. They examine not just technical dimensions of progress but also multiple dimensions such as culture, process, expertise, investment, and governance. Maturity indices enable institutions to determine where they are and where they aspire to be.

Deployment indices measure stages of deployment for specific technologies and services, which are aggregated to track progress in an area.

Looking at these levels in addition to student scores and grades could help teachers better understand the needs of their students, whether individually or as a group. In addition, Panorama utilizes surveys to measure teacher engagement and family involvement, realizing that these factors are indispensable to school climate.

Article Students Can Use Data Too

Article Students Can Use Data Too | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
In today’s climate of prioritizing data-driven practices in education, it is usually teachers and administrators poring over student performance data; rarely is the focus ever on students using data to improve their learning. But recently, researchers conducted a study on two sixth grade science classes in the Midwest, hoping to answer the question of whether middle school students can think metacognitively about their learning and use data about their performance to seek appropriate supports in their learning.

But can we measure it?

But can we measure it? | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
It’s often asserted that some things can’t be measured. But how true is this? And if we can’t measure something, should we stop pretending we can teach or develop it?

Can creativity be measured? What about resilience? Can we measure problem solving? What about ethical reasoning?

We take for granted the measurement of variables such as length, weight and temperature, but it is worth remembering that these variables and their measurement were human inventions. Albert Einstein made this point in the Evolution of Physics when he observed that ‘physical concepts are the free creations of the human mind and are not, however it may seem, uniquely determined by the external world’.

Kim Flintoff's insight:
"Every time a student interacts with your Learning Management System, another piece of data is created and collected. Every login, button click, chat entry, assessment, and time stamp is tracked and recorded. Many Instructional Designers don’t take full advantage of this data—but with learning analytics (LA), you can use that data in powerful ways to impact not only your course design, but much more."

NGDLE Learning Analytics: Gaining a 360-Degree View of Learning | EDUCAUSE

NGDLE Learning Analytics: Gaining a 360-Degree View of Learning | EDUCAUSE | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Since the 2015 release of the EDUCAUSE report The Next Generation Digital Learning Environment: A Report on Research, many articles have been written on various aspects of the NGDLE. In this post, we'll focus on the need for a central repository for learning analytics (see figure 1). Without a central repository, the learning environment — including LMS data and activity records for videos, e-portfolios, and third-party tools — becomes compartmentalized and stove-piped, making it difficult to provide a 360-degree view of the learner and learning environment. This makes it much more difficult to have a combined view of student learning activities that can allow instructors and program managers to ascertain the effectiveness of teaching and learning.

The Summit approach views collecting data as important no matter how that information is gathered. Surveys can be as simple as a thumbs up/thumbs down or as tech-dependent as a Google form. While assessments are the differentiating factor at this school, the focus is on the results of these surveys to shape instruction.

As higher education institutions deploy learning analytics platforms to better optimize student learning, the question of what data are collected and in which contexts arises. To fully understand the total student experience, data about student interactions with rec and wellness centers, student support services, and certainly academic advising centers are being collected and analyzed as they're added to the traditional classroom attendance and engagement model.

Yet, when institutions look at potential factors that might impact academic success, libraries may be overlooked.

Blackboard is planning to introduce a new feature in its learning management system later this year to help instructors grade students’ participation in class discussions online. The feature, called the “discussion forum recommended grade,” will use computer algorithms to analyze students’ posts in class discussion forums.
John Whitmer, learning analytics and research director at Blackboard, said that instructors want to use discussion forums to judge students’ participation, but that doing so is time-consuming and difficult since the forums were designed for discussion rather than assessment. These discussion forums are often underused by students, said Whitmer, since there is often little incentive for students to engage
