Moving beyond a point-in-time, data gathered from the student experience within digital content allows for a more comprehensive - and early - view of where they are exceeding as well as struggling. In this session, you’ll hear from institutions on the frontline of using institutional intelligence and analytics to measure the impact that digital content and technology are having on learning.

More and more institutions are interested in setting up their own learning record store that not only captures data from learning systems but also behavioral data from other campus systems, such as advising systems.
