“Previously I viewed stats and quant research as this cold, steely, sterile enterprise of dehumanizing people into numbers without knowing and understanding the why of behaviors. This program has caused me to do a 180° on that perspective.”
–Dr. Matthew Boutilier, Class of 2023 and Associate Dean of Online Education at Trinity International University

The Power & Promise of Learning Analytics
"Learning Analytics provides researchers with exciting new tools to study teaching and learning. Moreover, as data infrastructures improve — from data capture and analysis, to visualization and recommendation — we can close the feedback loop to learners, offering more timely, precise, actionable feedback. In addition, educators, instructional designers and institutional leaders gain new insights once the learning process is persistent and visible."Society for Learning Analytics Research (S0LAR)
"Whether educational data is taken from students’ use of interactive learning environments, computer-supported collaborative learning, or administrative data from schools and universities, it often has multiple levels of meaningful hierarchy, which often need to be determined by properties of the data itself, rather than in advance. Issues of time, sequence, and context also play important roles in the study of educational data."The International Educational Data Mining Society (IEDMS)
