What is Blackboard Learning Analytics?

The ability to make evidenced based decisions on Blackboard (Course Resources) performance, engagement and achievement should offer opportunities for us to enhance the student learning journey and empower both staff and students alike.

The Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) team are now supporting academic staff to access various actionable reporting dashboards, which will illuminate areas of the digital student journey previously difficult to reach. In doing so, it is envisaged that academic colleagues will better understand student learning activity to inform appropriate academic advice and guidance, such that students are enabled to reach their goals and maximise their academic potential.

Alongside the implementation of Blackboard Analytics for Learn, the TEL team are also working with colleagues across the institution to implement a wider suite of reporting tools for additional learning technologies. By contributing enhanced learning analytics to institutional business intelligence, Derby is pursuing its ambitions to become a sector lead in personalising the student experience.

The University of Derby is one of fifteen institutions working with Jisc to pilot their Digital Capability Discovery Tool, which has been developed for staff to self-audit and reflect on their digital capabilities.
