Intro to Blackboard Analytics SOURCES: Fritz, J (2011) “Classroom walls that talk: Using online course activity data of successful students to raise self-awareness of underperforming peers” in The Internet and Higher Education. 14(2) Why Use Learning Analytics? 1. Increased understanding of online learning behaviors • 70% of students who initially encounter an activity checking tool state that they are intrigued, if not surprised, by the results 2. Increased levels of achievement • Students who chose to regularly check their activity in a class are twice as likely to earn a grade of C or higher in that class • Students with high levels of course activity in a class are not only more likely to pass, but have been seen to achieve a half-grade higher in subsequent classes that require it.
