York St John University are part of Solutionpath’s growing community of clients having invested in our Digital Engagement Learner Analytics platform, StREAM. And – as a result – they have already seen measurable results in their student retention and progression initiatives within 6 months!
Many institutions want nothing more than to have a Learning Analytics mindset embedded in their culture and processes. Most also recognise the importance in the changing world of using their data to drive decisions and most importantly take action that supports their retention and progression targets. The key outcome – we can all agree – is always to provide an excellent teaching and learning experience to all students.
The benefits and outcomes of implementing Learning Analytics are many and varied, which can often prevent progress when institutions attempt to design programmes that cover all bases. This creates confusion and stalls progress. York St John took a different approach, and this has enabled them to move forward at pace and with confidence.
“We are a progressive institution who wants to move forward with pace whilst ensuring the evidence is there to support our decision making as we progress to the full implementation of Learning Analytics – so we decided to keep it focused and just get going”
Andrew Fern, Director of Strategy & Planning, York St John University
