Event Overview
Come learn about data analytics options that are now available to many instructors and course designers. These options are often baked into our LMS, come with existing systems such as lecture capture and video servers, or are provided by Google Analytics.  See examples of how to take advantage of this information that is currently not used to its full potential.  We will look to the future by imagining ways data can be presented in more coherent and meaningful ways; including how data from institutional systems like the SIS might be integrated with participation and performance data from academic technologies.  The discussion will include privacy concerns and efficacy, as well as technical and institutional barriers that might need to be overcome or accommodated.

Session Outcomes:
- Get past the hype about "learning analytics" and "big data" (phrases so overused they are in danger of losing all meaning) to evaluate and take advantage of existing or near term benefits.
- Using visualizations to produce reports that are easy to understand.
- Looking at different institutional roles (student, designer, instructor, advisor, and administrator) to account for their differing needs and challenges.
- Understanding which benefits/challenges are more open to near term application/resolution than others.
