Learn to Use Big Data to Improve Learning Outcomes
In recent years, the role of Big Data has been expanding, particularly as it applies to education. Colleges, universities and other post-secondary institutions recognize the benefit of using data and analysis to guide learning outcomes and support student and faculty success. NCU’s learning analytics in higher education specialization can help you evaluate how data can be used in colleges, universities, and other post-secondary educational settings to improve institutional accountability, student success and retention. Other uses for data, such as facilities management, are also explored. Given the competitive nature of higher education today, many institutions are using data not only to gain a competitive advantage, but also to improve educational outcomes for both students and faculty. A specialization in learning analytics in higher education can prepare you to enter this expanding field as a skilled educational data analyst.
