Everywhere we look, data is all around us: from location-based activity apps reporting our daily movements to dashboards updating us on the latest COVID statistics across the globe. As learning and development professionals, it is part of our jobs to collect, analyze, and make decisions based on our learners and the learning data. These data source are diverse: they could be from our organizations’ Learning Management Systems (LMS), Learning Experience Platforms (LXP), knowledge base software, HR systems, intranets, social and informal platforms, and mobile apps. Collectively, these datasets give insights about how our learners’ learning trajectories and help inform our learning design decisions and allocate learning resources. In this interactive presentation, we will discuss how to get started with learning analytics , where to look for patterns, and start exploring some of the challenges and ethical concerns within this ever-changing field.
