Having talked it through with a few people, and tried to use it as a discussion aid at a recent event, I’ve tweaked my visualisation of learning analytics slightly, and included the new version below.
The tweaks are because I wanted to illustrate not just the required technology infrastructure an institution is likely to need, but also the people who are likely to be involved within the process, and provide an indicator of their likely required skill sets.
It does illustrate just how learning analytics touches on the majority of the institution. It also, allows us to look at the visualisation to see if we recognise these roles within our institution.
Note – this only uses a subset of potential data sources, and feedback loops to senior managers etc.,
