Insight into students activities and progress can be very helpful in assessing the quality of your course and making informed revisions. Almost all ICT tools can in principle track students activity, but this information is not always stored or accessible for technical or ethical reasons. Even when (part of) this information is available (e.g. Canvas Course Analytics), it is still difficult to reach meaningful conclusions based on the data.
Several people at the faculty of science are active in the field of learning analytics and didactical research. If you are interested in using learning analytics to improve the quality of your course and/or to assess the effectiveness of a particular intervention, please contact the special interest group Research in Higher Science Education via e-mailing Dr. Natasa Zupancic-Brouwer.
