Learning Analytics for Faculty and Students


Learning Analytics tool is incorporated within the new NTULearn environment. This tool, powered by Blackboard Analytics, enables schools and faculty to analyse and track the academic performance, progression and learning behaviours of the students. It also provides information for students to monitor their own performance in their courses as compared to peers of the same courses.

Through the analysis of collected data, the tool:

  • encourages students to be responsible for their own learning (self-directed)
  • improves student’s online engagement
  • enables Schools/Faculty to identify at-risk students (or weaker students) for early intervention and to improve student retention
  • supports Schools/Faculty to identify and diagnose if the learning outcomes are achieved and to make just in time improvement to course design and delivery
