Following input into a report compiled by the Higher Education Commission, From Bricks to Clicks: The Potential of Data and Analytics in Higher Education Prof John Domingue spoke to the Guardian about how comprehensive use of learning analytics could transform the sector. John will also attend the launch event at the House of Lords at the end of the month.

The report foresees a system in which students at risk of failing can be identified early on in their studies, in a similar vein one of KMi’s flagship projects, OU Analyse looks at the online behaviour of OU students to highlight those ‘at-risk’ of failing to alert module teams who may then judge whether or not to intervene.
“I think in 10 years there will be data for everything, these technologies are changing everything and I think it will change higher education” says Domingue.

Take a look below at some of the great work in KMi that inspired John’s input into this hot topic and to read the full article click here.
