Updated D2L Analytics Suite Captures Data From Apps, Content Publishers, LMSes and More

Released today, the newest version of D2L's Brightspace Insights analytics suite captures streamed student data from across a broad array of sources — including learning apps, content publishers, online tools and different learning management systems. Instructors can see where learners are succeeding or struggling in real time, and intervene immediately to improve outcomes.

"Harnessing big data intelligently has transformed other industries, but in education, it hasn't been used in real time to help learners when they need it most," said D2L President and CEO John Baker in a press release. "With today's release, we've made it easier for instructors to predict and forecast learners at risk, to help them while they're learning, not just by flagging issues at the end of a term. D2L's new Brightspace Insights provides instructors with higher quality insights that will help raise completion rates, lead to improved outcomes, and encourage stronger engagement."

Brightspace Insights tracks, measures and monitors student progress through the transmission of IMS Caliper learning events from tools like Kaltura, Microsoft Office Mix and Microsoft OneNote Class Notebook Creator, giving faculty a comprehensive view of students' learning activities. Reports, data visualizations and predictive analytics provide visibility into student issues; real-time analytics are embedded into instructors' workflows to provide timely, in-context, actionable information.
