Learning Analytics at Open University – presentation by Dr. Bart Rienties

Dr. Bart Rienties from Open University (OU) presented a keynote at MoodleMoot IE/UK 2015 about “Learning Analytics: The good, the bad, or perhaps ugly?”.

Learning analytics provide institutions with opportunities to support student progression and to enable personalised, rich learning.

The presentation was focused on learning analytics at the Open University which runs one of the largest Moodle installation in the world.

The presentation filters the “good”, the “Bad” and the “ugly” analytics in terms of:

  • What evidence is there that analytics actually helps learners to reach their potential?
  • How does the Open University UK use analytics to provide support for students and teachers?
  • How can we make learning more personalised, adaptive and meaningful, and what are the implications for Moodle?
