A Focus on the Student Learning Experience
Unicon’s IT experts provide services for each stage of the learning analytics cycle: assessment, planning, implementation, analysis, and improvement.
Optimizing learning environments to focus on how students learn and how instructors teach is a central goal of achieving student success through learning analytics. Unicon’s approach to learning analytics can expose student behaviors that can lead to conclusions which impact student success.
Learning analytics can also identify at-risk students, based on student activity, outcomes, and demographics. Armed with the right information, instructors and advisors can focus their efforts on the students who need help the most, and can design effective interventions based on student needs.
Unicon’s approach leads clients from vision through delivery of a student success program. Unlike analytics product vendors, Unicon is technology agnostic and works with open source, custom, and proprietary applications, guiding institutions to make informed decisions based on their learning analytics readiness and initiative/project goals. Unicon’s IT experts provide services for each stage of the learning analytics cycle: assessment, planning, implementation, analysis, and improvement.
