Discover how data and learning analytics can help your organization overcome its biggest challenges cost-effectively.

Fundamentals Of Learning Analytics

Above all, Big Data gathered from your L&D activities should be centralized and organized. But how do you use all these percentages, charts, and graphs to your advantage? That's where the analytics journey comes into play. Managers, Instructional Designers, and other key members of the team must use the data to enact meaningful change and support your business objectives. On the other hand, analytics also give you the power to identify your strong suits and delve deeper into the "why." For example, why your customer service stats are suddenly soaring, or why course completion stats are at an all-time high. As a result, you're able to implement similar methodologies or practices in other parts of your business plan to achieve similar outcomes.

The Importance Of Data And Learning Analytics For L&D Optimization

The first hurdle is broaching the subject of data and learning analytics with the organization. Even if you've already launch internal data-mining missions in the past, you must still get buy-in for additional resources to dig deeper. Here are just a few reasons why every business should consider a robust learning analytics plan to achieve their goals and bridge crucial gaps.

Disclose Hidden Pain Points

One of the top benefits of data and learning analytics is identifying overlooked pain points, specifically performance, knowledge, and skill gaps that hinder workplace productivity. For example, use behavior and engagement data to spot patterns in employee performance that negatively impact customer service stats. True data analysis isn't about broad strokes. In fact, standardized evaluation methods and analytical tools give you the opportunity to evaluate your organization at every level, from individual staffers to user groups.

Personalize Your L&D Strategy

Learning data can also help you zero in on L&D obstacles that hinder online training engagement. For instance, low attendance scores or LMS login rates may indicate that it's time for a change. You can also focus on specific learning activities to determine if other interventions or support resources are required. All of these factors enhance personalization and provide added benefit to your online learners.

Improve Online Training ROI

Of course, the perk that wins over most organizations is the cost factor. Learning analytics allow you to evaluate the relationship business reports, employee performance, and online training outcomes. As an example, sales are low this quarter, how does this tie into workplace performance behaviors? Are there any skill gaps you need to address with JIT support? Furthermore, is the main culprit lack of employee engagement during live events and certification courses? Getting to the root of the problem helps you address business challenges head-on and improve your bottom line.

Mitigate Business Risks

A popular use case for learning analytics is compliance online training, but risk mitigation extends to every aspect of business operations. For example, data evaluation can help you pinpoint areas of improvement in order to prevent workplace accidents and the expenses that come with them. Learning analytics also allow you to forecast significant changes in the market and highlight upcoming trends so that you always stay one step ahead.
