Learning Analytics with IBM

  • IBM -- 590 Madison Ave @ 57th St

IBM is a leader in metrics and uses learning analytics to gauge learning effectiveness, drive learning recommendations, and aid in decision making. Join TC alumnus (and adjunct faculty member) Nabeel Ahmad (EdD '09) and current student Michael Ticknor as they demonstrate IBM's learning analytics system.

Learn how they collect various metrics to help analyze, measure, and report data about improving learning and the context it takes place in. You will leave with the knowledge to implement learning analytics in your environment.

Pre-registration for the event is now closed.
