Since the last decade, higher education has moved online and institutions have had access to more student data than ever before. Employing student data to improve learning experiences and environments was disseminated in 2011, a field so-called Learning Analytics. For over 12 years, the emergence of Learning Analytics has evolved into a mature research field and practice that gained attention by institutions and governments. In this talk, I will share with you how learning analytics is enabled via collecting, processing, and reporting of students’ data. One of the major outcomes of learning analytics is visuals formed in dashboards that help teachers, students, advisors, and institutions to act in order to improve the learning process and experience.
