This group incorporated the active use of Civitas data analysis and other tools related to learning analytics in one or more courses. Participants learned about the Civitas system as well as other related data tools to analyze course-specific data and use it to inform instruction as it takes place within the Blackboard LMS. This group built knowledge capacity as it relates to the topic of learning analytics, related tools for analysis, and visualization (e.g., Tableau), and to become ambassadors for data-rich learning tools moving forward. During the fall semester, the group focused on being in a learning mindset with analytics and Civitas, with an emphasis on building capacity with group members and planning analytics-focused projects for spring semester. Participants attended the OLC Accelerate conference, held in Orlando and worked towards engaging in IRB-approved research with a goal to write a manuscript to be submitted to a research journal or in the ResearchCommons.
