Rob Nyland (eCampus Research & Innovation Manager, Boise State University)
For several years, Learning Analytics has been touted as a potential tool for improving student success and retention. However, there seems to be little empirical research regarding how learning analytics can be implemented effectively in online programs. After implementing Analytics For Learn, the Boise State University eCampus Center partnered with faculty, advisors, and administrators from an online program in an action research project. In this session we will discuss empirical findings from that project, and how we are using these findings to impact student success and retention in online programs at Boise State University.
