The Top 5 Learning Analytics

Your Training Edge

Learning analytics is everywhere nowadays. Learning analytics is a huge area in which there are diverse tools, accomplishing diverse tasks. They are often considered as the learning analytics solutions. Learning analytics is an application of data gathering, analysis, measurement and reporting to L&D professionals and trainers with an aim to improve and optimize the learning experience and atmosphere for the learners. Why Learning Analytics?

Learning Analytics: Complexities & Analysis Types

The last few posts in our Learning Analytics Research series have looked at the three categories of learning analytics (i.e. Analytics start with measurement, or the simple act of tracking things and recording values to tell us what happened. Otherwise, it’s impossible to do any analytics. In current practice, most analytics fall into the basic data evaluation category, and that’s OK. Here, we’re looking at things such as correlations and regression analysis.

Human Capital Analytics — Now

In spite of the importance of this capital (the people and the cost to support them), real financial analysis of the impact of variable outcomes is seldom conducted. While this sounds obvious, performance data required to make this analysis—and determine the associated adjustment to increase performance—is frequently isolated in multiple spreadsheets or locked in enterprise systems. While xAPI has been a buzzword in recent years, we believe its tipping point has arrived.
