Using Student Analytics for Online Course Improvement

Improve Online Learning & Student Engagement with Analytics

You can improve teaching and learning in your distance learning courses by using data from your learning management systems to see how often a student reviews course content or checks in with a Discussion Board—and you won’t need a degree in statistics to analyze the data or develop a helpful interpretation of what it all means.

Course analytics can help you get proactive with your online learning students.

See how data from learning management systems lets you identify students who may be falling behind before it’s too late, and learn how to analyze the effectiveness of your online education practices.

Although distance learning is revolutionizing higher education, high quality student/faculty interaction is still the key.


This seminar gives you the basic understanding you need to improve teaching and learning in your courses by using course analytics—and you don’t need to be a statistician to see the positive results.

Learning goals

After participating in this seminar, you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize that traditional improvement techniques, such as surveys and evaluations at the end of term, are reactive, not proactive
  • Describe how the proactive use of course analytics improves interaction and content presentation before and during a semester
  • Explain why improving interaction is not restricted by program

Employ analytic information gathered and interpreted to improve courses currently being taught
