Abstract

© 2016 Portland International Conference on Management of Engineering and Technology, Inc. This paper presents the findings from a study conducted with a number of universities regarding their use of learning analytics (LA) available within their learning management systems (LMS). Data was collected from a number of data collection instruments including an online survey, in-depth interviews with IT directors and academic administrators, and a case study in Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. It is evident from the study that universities are attempting to make better use of their learning management systems to make more informed decisions regarding short-term and long-term goals. Some of the most popular usage includes analytics performed at the institutional level, college level, degree-program level, course level, and even course section level. Courses and degree programs as well as learning performance and objectives can be measured and analyzed using different goals, criteria, and accreditation requirements.
