Activity Data

It is important to monitor how students are engaging with the subject materials and participating in face-to-face and online elements.

Learning analytics enables educators to track activity and provide feedback to support learning. A range of tools are available that can be used to review and improve the use of content and learning activities.

Use these tools to identify students in need of support and enable resources to be provided as appropriate.

The data can also be used to improve the student experience and curriculum design through reflection on student access considerations and subject site design.

Data types
