Tuija Alasalmi

Abstract

The article presents results of a survey and interviews mapping students’ expectations and needs on learning analytics. The discussion focuses on the functionalities and features which were considered to support self-regulated learning in Moodle learning environment. The aim of the discussion is to identify how the reported student needs could be met by utilizing descriptive, prescriptive or predictive learning analytics. It was discovered that students need and expect certain functions in the digital learning environment to support self-regulated learning. The survey results indicate that students mainly demand for tools which could help them in planning and scheduling their studies. Secondly, to be able to monitor and regulate their performance, they need progression tracking tools as well as timely and constructive feedback. Features of descriptive analytics were considered the most useful for self-regulation, while the expected benefits of prescriptive and predictive analytics were more controversial and tentative.
