What is learning analytics? And how does it differ from static predictive analytics? The answer to these two intriguing questions is at the very heart of what we do and helps define YouBthere’s vision for Higher Education and the significant role that our digital technology plays.
While an educational institution might pull student data from their respective school’s database before that student’s educational journey begins, thereby providing early identifiers such as geographic location, a high school’s identity, or even that student’s household income. And while this type of static data can provide small insight into a student’s ability to learn early-on, however as that student’s educational journey continues-on static data becomes totally irrelevant in helping secure a positive educational student outcome.
We recognize the distinction and significance of real-time non-static performance and decisional data, and in-addition we fully understand the relevancy of the duration learning cycle. Combining real-time interactive learning features with real-time learning analytics so an instructor or administrator can measure and address a student’s needs on a more immediate timeline if they desire.
By proactively measuring and identifying student-specific interactions a school can lay claim that they are doing everything possible to help their student’s succeed!
