Strengths

UniSA has attracted many of the worlds’ leading researchers in learning analytics. The strength of our research lies in the breadth of research that is achievable through access to large scale organizational data sets. In particular we have strengths in models of organizational adoption, networked learning, social network analysis, machine learning, data mining, assessment and feedback, cognitive science, computational linguistics, and education. As such, our work is wide ranging and applied covering development of predictive models, optimizing feedback, student and teacher sensemaking, analytic dashboards, video analytics and networked models of learning, to name a few. Our approach to learning analytics revolves around the need to address challenges experienced by learners and teachers. Hence, our work first seeks to develop and test learning analytics innovations. The outcomes of this work are then piloted in practice for further evaluation and assessment of the factors that may impede adoption. The outcomes are then translated at scale for organizational adoption.

Strengths

Indiana University is comprised of 9 campuses, as well as IU Online. This diversity of learning environments, including over 90,000 students, is supported by a shared data architecture and information technology division, enabling quantitative analyses of teaching and learning at uniquely broad scales. IU is also a charter member of the Unizin consortium, and is committed to rigorous and responsible research that advances the Unizin data platform's promise of becoming the world's largest learning laboratory. At IU's flagship campus in Bloomington, the Center for Learning Analytics and Student Success (CLASS) actively supports faculty engagement with these data resources, helping to foster a culture of data-driven, evidence-based curricular decisions and instructional innovations. Across all these efforts, the learning analytics community at IU shares a common commitment to the university's educational mission of helping students of all kinds reach their potential and prepare for a lifetime of success.
