Seeing is Believing: Four Essential Benefits of Learning Analytics

 In Learning Analytics

Now more than ever, capturing actionable insights about learning behaviors is key to elevating the performance of distance learning…

In the current environment of uncertainty, it seems almost daily that I hear someone say, “I wish I had a crystal ball to know what was ahead”. While none of us are afforded this luxury, this wishful thinking is a reminder of the value that visibility and insights bring to a business, particularly during times of pivotal change.

In this time of disruption, Learning and Development leaders have been confronted with an onslaught of changing requirements, evolving organizational needs, and a re-imagining of best practices for designing and executing training programs. In the early triage mode, getting programs deployed and keeping teams engaged have been meaningful wins during the early stages of transition. Many of the leaders we’re speaking with are finally at a stage, however, where they can take stock of what’s been accomplished to date and ask: “What’s ahead?”

Our belief is that the answer, in part, resides in the learning analytics that can be gathered from home-bound workers that are  adapting to digital engagement and remote learning. If you haven’t captured that data and created those insights, you’re missing an opportunity to leverage knowledge to guide your actions and smooth the journey ahead.

At Zoomi, we advocate for the value and impact of learning analytics in four key areas:

  1. Providing guidance on course design and redesign priorities
  2. Establishing engagement benchmarks for virtual learning programs
  3. Critical insights into learner preferences and the variability of interest in specific content areas
  4. Comparative data on which topics, methods or formats are producing the best and the worst learning engagement

Ultimately, learning analytics will not provide L&D leaders with a crystal ball, but they do offer insights that improve future learning outcomes. Learning analytics can be a catalyst for improved course design, content alignment, and engagement performance. The ability to leverage insights about cognitive, behavioral, and affective preferences for each learner can be a powerful tool to diagnose, predict and prescribe learner outcomes.
