JISC Learning Analytics training

Following on from earlier messages and information about the BU Learning Analytics pilot we are pleased to confirm the implementation of the extended pilot.  All Level 0 and Level 4 programmes are in scope in Semester 1 2022-23 academic year, with the opportunity to use the following features: 

  • Attendance capture – Checkin  
  • Unit reporting 
  • Student engagement reporting  

Learning Analytics is intended to give students and staff a better understanding of individual student experience and progress. This, in conjunction with the development of our new Personal Tutor policy, will help in our approach to student engagement ensuring the BU learning experience is personalised, inter-disciplinary and consistently excellent.  

You can find out more about Learning Analytics at BU on the Learning Analytics pages of the intranet.
