Analytics in education is still at its early stage and most of the work in this area is conceptual and comprises small scale funded projects. with the growing adoption of technology in education and with better data gathering and analysis tools available, analytics will play a significant role in improving administration, research, teaching and learning, and resource provision in education. Analytics poses a new challenge and provides opportunities for educators and technologists to work together to explore new tools and techniques to use data effectively, to bring real changes in teaching and learning and to transform the accountability, efficiency and relevance of education.
The following are some examples of analytics applications (platforms and specific tools) and organisational initiatives in education:
