Transcript of "Enhancing retention through learning analytics"

  1. 1. © University of South Wales Enhancing retention through learning analytics Dr Jo Smedley University of South Wales September 2013
  2. 2. © University of South Wales “University learners sometimes encounter challenges with their learning which can lead them to quit. To enhance retention and success of all students, information technology has enabled the analytical review of considerable quantitative and qualitative learning data. This has informed the identification of several key factors with differential applications, for example, between subjects, between student age groups, which has led to the enhanced targeting of continuing initiatives to maximise overall achievement.” Abstract
