Analysis of student LMS data
Analysis of student LMS data

This Excel Tool, developed by PolyU EDC, can be used to analyse users' usage statistics and interactions from the archive file downloaded from Learn@PolyU. Additionally, visualizations and summary tables can be generated for you to do simple learning analytics. Raw data is also provided for your exploration and if possible, you can combine with other datasets to do further analysis by yourself.

 

This tool is easy to use, and you don’t need install or learn to use any new software. All you need to do is to archive your Bb course from Learn@PolyU and have the Microsoft Excel program installed in your computer.
