There’s a lot of talk about big data and business intelligence, but how do we build actionable insights from the learning activities we provide? This session will explore visualizations and ways that data analytics solve the distinct business challenges of three high-profile education programs. We’ll review how analytics and artificial intelligence are not out-of-reach concepts and can, in fact, help organizations steer proper investments in learning, get clear understanding of impact, and determine what general sentiments are coming from evaluation data.
This highly visual, case study-based session will feature real-world examples of the software and tools used and be led by Tamer Ali and Brian Kalbfleisch, both seasoned professionals in edtech and passionate advocates in the possibilities of data analytics.
