For over three (3) decades, global businesses have been benefiting from responsive and intuitive computer intelligence to stay updated and increase their ROI and performance (AG Picciano et al 2012). Educational institutions around the globe are getting in on the act too, predicting a significant range of learning impact, starting from how courses and institutions are marketed, curriculums are structured, to how students are monitored and supported (Brett Henebery, 2019).
Directors of Academic Planning have critical roles in learning organisations, as they provide strategic leadership of Academic Services. They respond to opportunities and challenges within the rapidly changing environment of the faculties, other units and even students needs, with the support of robust data. This means they provide for the universities a clear direction for continuous improvement, innovation and quality services delivery at all times.
They must have the agility to respond to issues if they want their institution to be at the forefront of their peers. The agility can be gained by the use of a robust education technology system that captures data across Faculties, students and other units; data should be easily accessed at all times and anywhere.
Some of the benefits of LMS reporting which universities miss from absolute or even non-existent reporting system include;
- Ability to Stay Updated At All Times: Compiling a report whenever you need a clear picture of how things are going, without having to trawl all over the place to collect all the data you need is “administrative bliss”. What’s even more about these real-time reports are not just the speed to access but their depth. Creating custom reports which pull data directly from your LMS means you should be able to pick the data you want to report on, so your reports are always tailored to what you need to see.
- Testing and evaluation of curricula: Comparing different training styles and curricula, is one of the greatest strengths of quality learning analytics. It is vital for universities that either run or intend to run blended learning classes or even manage a skill-based curriculum.These analytics mean academic planners will get intelligence on all the classes, view clearly how they are doing while keeping track of what is useful and what isn’t.
Mining learning descriptive and prescriptive data, go far in helping to improve student success, their employability, and the ability for a university to charge for the value they provide. Do you feel frustrated as an administrator, and does the lack of robust data to make the right decision affect your productivity and the growth of your university? Do not worry; you are not alone. We can surely help!
