Technology enhances learning (TEL) or blended learning in education especially in higher education, has an impact to the total number of enrolments in courses deliver virtual or distance learning from the Malaysian e-learner.

Therefore, the question lies where “How to bring out the most opportunity for this learning management student to the distance learner learning outcome?” Learning Analytics. Als "Learning Analytics" wird die Interpretation verschiedenster Daten bezeichnet, die von Studierenden produziert oder für sie erhoben werden, um Lernfortschritte zu messen, zukünftige Leistungen vorauszuberechnen und potenzielle Problembereiche aufzudecken (Horizon Report 2012).

Der Zugriff auf die Daten wird möglich, da Lernangebote und -prozesse in vielen Fällen mittels elektronischer Systeme unterstützt werden und dabei Daten über das Nutzungsverhalten erhoben werden können. Ziel ist es, mit Hilfe der Auswertung der Daten die Studierenden besser in ihrem Lernprozess zu unterstützen und letztendlich den Lehr-Lernprozess und Lehr-Lernerfolg insgesamt zu verbessern.

Will Analytics transform Education?

In education, Analytics (or Learning Analytics) is becoming a hot topic, promising to disrupt and transform education and learning. In this overview article we do a short detour to the business world for some examples of business analytics; look at how education have approached the phenomenon; explore some practices; and raise some concerns about the downside of this trend. The most spectacular example of business use of consumer data is the US chain store Target’s analysis of changes in a customer’s life, e.g. finding out whether or not a customer is pregnant[1], with the aim to send them coupons for certain products they will need. Internationally, Amazon’s use of real-time recommendations to give users feedback almost instantly and to create a personal shopping experience for each and every customer[2] is well known.

With GISMO instructors can examine various aspects of distance students, such as the attendance to courses, reading of materials, submission of assignments. Users of the popular learning management system Moodle may benefit from GISMO for their teaching activities. With respect to the standard reports provided by Moodle (which basically allow teachers to see if an individual student has viewed a specific resource or participated on a specific activity on a specific day), GISMO provides comprehensive visualizations that gives an overview of the whole class, not only a specific student or a particular resource.

With GISMO, instructors can perform analysis of the whole class, and may have a "clear picture" of what the class is doing, or has done in a period in the past. Contributors. Free Visualization Software. Thumbnails: ON off Sort by: name DATE To create a new visualization, choose a base dataset.

Putting web analytics data to use in higher education. I’ve spent much of the past four years helping raise awareness of the importance of web analytics for digital marketing and communications.

I’ve used many tactics to reach this goal: online surveys on the State of Web and Social Media Analytics in Higher Education, columns focusing on early adopters, trends and success stories, countless presentations at industry events, blog posts, and even an annual online conference entirely dedicated to higher education analytics. In June 2010, after presenting at UBTech in Las Vegas, I launched a year-long benchmarking project: the Higher Ed Web Analytics Revolution. This project was intended to overthrow marketing decisions based on opinions, hunches and guesses.

The goal was to collect and distribute useful benchmarking data on 12 website metrics selected for their relevance for colleges websites. With more than a hundred different institutions self-reporting data each month, the project helped, but not as much as I had hoped. New tools.

This personalized learning worked for students in medieval times at the first European universities, and it works best for students today, said Tim Renick, vice provost and vice president for enrollment management and student success at Georgia State University. "Technology affords us the opportunity at a large scale to begin to deliver some of that personalized education," Renick said.
