Description:Learning analytics is a rapidly growing and emergent field of research impacting the evolution of higher education, notably as it relates to learners' academic success and the design of personalized learning environments. In this online College Certificate program, students explore the collection, measurement and analysis of online learner data that informs decision-makers regarding learners' experience and overall academic performance. Students focus specifically on how learning analytics can help improve online learner retention and success, target at-risk learner populations and design curriculum for adaptive learning environments. Students also examine access and privacy issues as they relate to policies governing student data collection and learning analytics research.

Through analytics simulation, online discussions and applied learning activities and assignments, students practise learning analytics through the application of its evolving principles, methodologies and tools. The goal is to identify solutions to particular challenges faced by learners, as well as to optimize their user experience, their academic success and adaptive curriculum design practices.
