Learning Analytics Is a Must-Have Feature 



“Analytics are no longer a nice-to-have feature”, stated Dr. Linda Baer during the first Open edX Universities Symposium, celebrated last month at The George Washington University in DC.

Baer presented a graphic forecasting the evolution of the analytics technology, from descriptive and diagnostic to predictive and prescriptive analytics, where educators will be able to advance what will happen and how can they make it happen.

Currently, learning analytics technology is just on the first stage of the graphic.


The edX organization offers the Insights Analytics server to their paid partners –all of the universities and known brands that belong to the xConsortium.

Last week, IBL was able to complete the first installation of the last version of Insights Analytics –including Video Insights– on the Open edX community. GW Engineering’s Open edX platform is currently taking advantage of this service.
