Abstract

Online learning has frequently been exemplified as a revolutionary instrument, particularly in higher education. Similarly, learning analytics has been lauded as a means to identify students who need help, empower students to be more independent, and personalize the learning experience. Online learning and learning analytics blend nicely in education's quest for a transformational paradigm and, while conceptually appealing, institutions should be deliberate in their decision to adopt learning analytics. Institutional readiness for learning analytics is a complex endeavor involving a broad spectrum of resources and skills. Institutional reflection and self-study may allow stakeholders to set more realistic implementation goals. We'll discuss the broad idea of institutional capacity and readiness for successful learning analytics innovations.

Learning Objectives: Understand the broad concepts and themes associated with learning analytics readiness | Understand the complex nature of scalable and sustainable learning analytics initiatives
