Actionable analytics has been a goal in higher education for more than a decade. While progress has been made, including the increasing adoption of standards like IMS Caliper, many institutions still struggle with how to even get started. This session will present an overview of the state of learning analytics from the perspective of the university as a consumer of data useful to analytics. We will describe the IMS Caliper specification, show analytics in action with the U-M's MYLA project, and share technical details of a real-world analytics infrastructure. We'll also suggest ways that existing organizations and emerging standards can be coordinated to provide an integrated analytics ecosystem that can help institutions of all sizes start to implement meaningful analytics solutions.
