Everyone is always talking about learning analytics, but what is it and why does everyone want it for their teaching?
The integration of learning analytics has many advantages, which we also use in our project. For example, in the evaluation currently taking place at the HFT, we are testing what differences it makes for the learner if he can already prepare virtually for his real laboratory exercise and what effects we actually get with the use of digitized laboratory environments. Hopefully, we will be able to prepare students for learning in the best possible way and take advantage of benefits such as the ability to determine the learning speed ourselves. Learning Analytics helps to better understand teaching and learning and to get insights into the learning design and its consequences.
