The TAFE NSW Digital Lab is building a learning analytics framework to ensure all learning analytics initiatives have the greatest chance to positively impact learning, training and teaching experiences. Learning analytics is the collection, measurement, analysis and reporting of data pertaining to learning, and helps to provide insights into:
- individual learner achievements and patterns of behaviour in relation to others;
- predictions of course participants requiring extra support and attention;
- the creation of plans for teachers, trainers and support staff that support interactions with individuals and groups; and
- improvements to current courses or the development of new curriculum and training.
