Integrations with Moodle

A number of systems integrate with Moodle to provide learning analytics information externally.

Dimensions of Analytics

Learning analytics are a concept that has been emerging under a number of different names through the past decades. Its origins lie in research in data mining and intelligent tutoring systems. LA tools can be categorised in a number of ways. The diagram below describes such tools by how deeply they are integrated with other systems (source).
