Digital learning is predicted to grow and with the removal of the student cap, universities will look to provide an increased number of digital courses to cater for the increased student numbers, according to Policy Connect.

From Bricks to Clicks, a report commissioned by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) identified how big data and analytics has the ability to transform teaching and learning in higher education. 

Research analysed the current situation regarding student data collection within UK Higher Education Institutions and the opportunities that improved data collection will offer learning providers. 

ACCA recognises that the traditional view of learning is being swept away through a combination of increased demand and improved technology.

Moving from reactive to predictive analytics is going to be a challenge for all learning providers. Although it is an increasingly competitive sector, higher education institutions and students who harness technology and data will be given a level of insight and understanding on their performance that has never been seen before. 

According to ACCA, by working together, learning providers can use big data to provide a seamless and supportive learning experience for students, from the point they enter higher education through to gaining post-graduate and professional qualifications. 

Anthony Walters, policy manager at ACCA Western Europe said: “Using data collected about the way students interact with their learning provider, and how they approach learning will help shape courses that better meets students’ needs. 

Working with global professional bodies could be an attractive option for students, “Using big data can provide a goldmine of knowledge, for example you can identify which students are disengaged to predict who may be in danger of failing which will enable you to make timely interventions to help get students back on track,” said Mr Walters.
