Learning Analytics Symposium

On Thursday 8th December 2016, Dr Mark Glynn gave a presentation at the National Forum Learning Analytics Symposium. His brief talk, which is available in the video below, described some of the lessons and experiences from the DCU funded PredictEd project exploring the potential and pitfalls of learning analytics in the first year experience.

This Symposium, entitled “Bringing People Together; Exploring LA in Irish HE”,  was designed to introduce people relevant work in the area, help build a stronger community in the use of learning analytics, and collaborate to identify opportunities, challenges and solutions.
