The extended pilot of the Jisc Learning Analytics platform continues in Semester 2 with all Level 0 and Level 4 programmes in scope.
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 the 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.
