The Learning Analytics Journey: How To Chart Your Course
Where are you in your learning analytics journey? The way we measure learning impact—or, more often, don’t—is a long-standing source of debate in L&D, and too often it becomes a circular argument.

Every year a renewed cry for us to evaluate more rigorously. Followed by a lack of significant change. It’s like an endless loop we seem to navigate without ever finding an exit.
Meanwhile, the world has moved on. Data is ubiquitous and often instantly available, the fuel for artificial intelligence powering the next wave of automation in business and life.
