Week 11 - Research & Analytics

Dates: March 28 - April 4, 2011

Overview
The growth of data surpasses the ability of organizations or individuals to make sense of it. This concern is particularly pronounced in relation to knowledge, teaching, and learning. Learning institutions and corporations make little use of the data learners "throw off" in the process of accessing learning materials, interacting with educators and peers, and creating new content. In an age where educational institutions are under growing pressure to reduce costs and increase efficiency, analytics promises to be an important lens through which to view and plan for change at course and institutions levels. Corporations likewise face pressure for increased competitiveness and productivity, a challenge that requires important contributions in organizational capacity building.
