  21. 21. Student Success Plan overview Updates ● Case management system/intervention. ● Support for internationalization. ● Communication platform for advisors. SSP as a Learning Analytics Component. ● Intervention model of Analytics ● Tool provider sends learning event to the LRS. ● Data is analyzed, students are classified based on historical results of similar students. ● Early Alert in SSP for “at risk” students. Roadmap ● More integration with Analytics ● More internationalization as it becomes needed. ● Amazon EC2 and RDS solutions stamped and made available ● Analytics Reporting / Dashboards.
  22. 22. Project updates on Learning Analytics Processor Update Updates ● Apache Hadoop ecosystem already provides much of what was envisioned for Apereo LAP. ● A dormant project which will likely be discontinued.
  23. 23. Open Source Notifications Platform The University of Edinburgh is developing an open source notifications platform for higher education, work in progress. ● Is not under the Learning Analytics Initiative but suits really fine. ● The Notifications Backbone ○ An enterprise-wide notification system which: ■ Securely imports, store and distributes notifications ■ Integrates with ● key sources of notifications (publishers) ● the most popular receiving mediums (subscribers) ○ Provides a UI for service management and support ○ Potentially gives users choice of receiving mediums ○ Communication platform for advisors. Currently they are looking for partners, collaboration and engagement to make it sustainable.
  24. 24. IMPLEMENTATIONS UNDERWAY Implementations. ● University of Notre Dame. ○ 12K+ students = 20M events ○ Predictive analytics - early alert objectives ● University of Michigan. ● North Carolina State ○ 34K+ students = 30M events ○ Predictive analytics - modified marist model ○ Student risk scores within 2 weeks of start. ● JISC ● French ministry of Education - U. Lorraine. The year ahead ● Expand the student pulse. ● Develop integrations with LMSs / SISs (Data Loaders)
