The team of the SHEILA project, for which ENQA is a partner, is launching a massive open online course (MOOC) entitled “Moving towards systematic adoption of learning analytics in higher education” in November 2018. This course will give an overview of learning analytics in higher education, and introduce the SHEILA framework that can be used to support strategy and policy formation in addition to readiness assessment. It will be taught by a group of instructors with rich experiences of learning analytics research and it will equip participants with the knowledge and skills required to plan and implement learning analytics in a complex educational system.

With this MOOC, participants will, in particular, 1) have a basic understanding of learning analytics in higher education; 2) understand the adoption of learning analytics in an international landscape; 3) gain insights into key drivers, challenges, and relevant policies; 4) apply the SHEILA framework for learning analytics strategy formation; and 5) understand how to address different expectations and concerns among stakeholders.
