Week 23 – Activity 13: Why do we need social learning analytics?

Timing: 4 hours

Part 1

Part 2

Imagine you work in an educational institution that is considering making more use of learning analytics. Staff already have some understanding of learning analytics, but don’t know anything about social learning analytics. You have been tasked with addressing this lack of knowledge.

  • Prepare slides for a ten-minute presentation that can be used to explain to staff what social learning analytics are, why they are becoming more important and the benefits they may offer. Use suitable software, such as PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi or something else you know well.
  • In the time available, you will be able to include 5-10 slides, so select points and examples that are key to understanding social analytics.
  • In the forum, share your slides or a link to your presentation, together with a brief description of your target audience.
  • Consider the presentations put together by other learners and discuss why those key points have been selected.
