Culture and Learning Analytics

Dear participant,

Thank you for taking the time to complete our survey!

What is it about?

Learning Analytics is an increasingly important topic in educational research and policy. Learning Analytics is the collection and analysis of education-related data from students at universities with the aim of better understanding learners and providing them with optimal support in their learning. The aim of this questionnaire is to learn more about your attitude towards the collection, analysis and use of educational data by your university. The results of this questionnaire will help us to gain a better understanding of students' expectations of the work and use of education-related data.

Who are we?

We are an international group of researchers interested in cultural differences in the adoption of learning analytics around the world. This research is carried out in cooperation with the Open University of the Netherlands, German Institute for Educational Research (DIPF) and the Goethe University Frankfurt. Further information on this study can be found on the CILA website:
