Institutions have adopted various forms of digital teaching and learning. Some are fully online while others are using blended mode of learning and teaching. The Covid-19 Pandemic has forced all of us to the domain of online teaching and learning to the highest extent. This calls for an urgent need for learning analytics in a time of increased digital pedagogy. Effective use of learning analytics provides great insights to students on they are learning, to the teachers to understand how students are interacting with their courses and to the institution about how the system is performing. This webinar will explore those areas of how we can make good use of data and analytics to improve learning, helping teachers in designing learning activities and students to monitor their own performance.
