Implementing Learning Analytics into Existing Higher Education Legacy Systems

  title={Implementing Learning Analytics into Existing Higher Education Legacy Systems},
  author={Daniel Klasen and Dirk Ifenthaler},
Learning analytics have become a well-considered aspect of modern digital learning environments. One opportunity of learning analytics is the use of learning process data enabling lecturers to analyse students’ learning progression as well as to identify obstacles and risks. With this analytics knowledge, lecturers may want to scaffold students’ learning activities to improve the learning progress and overcome obstacles or risks. Prompts are known to be a possible solution for such scaffolding… Expand
