Analytics to analyse student usage of I2 learning resources

Danny Bedgood, Ian Holder

Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


How do we know if the resources we provide our students at our subject I2 sites help student learning? How do we know if students even look at the resources we provide? What information would you like about how your students use your subject site? These will be a few of the audience questions to begin talking about the Analytics available in I2. There is great interest in developing resources to help students learn; learning analytics from Learning Management Systems like Blackboard and Moodle however, can be used to try to discover if the resources genuinely provide a benefit to student learning (Hecking, Ziebarth, Hoppe, 2014). The Analytics built into the newly implemented Blackboard based I2 system at CSU allow instructors to explore how students use the learning resources provided to support them in their studies, and can provide evidence of the efficacy of the resource to student learning.This talk will briefly describe the analytics that an instructor can collect from Interact2 to learn about how students are using provided resources in subjects. Importantly this talk will focus on the assumptions,limitations and constraints of the analytics to assist in the correct interpretation of the data presented on students' use of Interact2. This talk will not so much show how to access this data, but rather the sorts of information that can be gleaned from a subject I2 site. The following talk on analytics in chemistry will provide reflection on what the analytics from particular classes can tell us about how students use the subject I2 site to learn.
