Learning Analytics for Online Teaching & Learning
With the release of the recently published Online Learning Journal (OLJ) Special Issue devoted to learning analytics for online teaching and learning, OLC continues our focus on the topic with webinars and featured blog posts from Dr. Anthony Picciano, Dr. Karen Swan, and Ellen Wagner. Please join us in reading the latest issue of OLJ and OLC Insights, as well as registering for the last two webinars in the learning analytics webinar series sponsored by Acrobatiq and theOnline Learning Journal.


We are pleased to present this special issue of the Online Learning Journal (OLJ), edited by Dr. Karen Vignare and Dr. Patsy Moskal, devoted to learning analytics for online teaching and learning. The nine papers in this issue provide new and informative research that we hope can help readers make decisions about applying analytics within the context of their own online teaching and learning environments. Readers will find information about designing environments within online learning while also highlighting studies that expand upon what exists in currently published research.

July 13 – Online Courses and Student Success | Wednesday, July 13, 2016, 1:00 – 2:00pm ET

Online learning is no longer an anomaly in U.S. higher education, but many still question its efficacy, especially for students most at-risk for failure. This Webinar will showcase the exciting results of recent research that suggests that taking online courses is not necessarily harmful to students’ chances of being retained at an institution. Designed to further explore the recent report, “Retention, Progression and the Taking of Online Courses” in the special Learning Analytics edition of Online Learning, the expert panelists will explain how a large scale analysis on the effectiveness of learning modalities compiled within the Predictive Analytics Reporting (PAR) Framework revealed that online courses can provide both flexibility and access while improving student completion.
