EMEA User Group Event 2019

Let's meet up at Queen Mary University of London!

Join us for an Echo360 community user group meeting at Queen Mary University of London to discuss learning analytics. With much uncertainty about the topic and how it can benefit teaching staff, this meeting aims to explore: how we can use analytics in our teaching; what are the in-class benefits to learners and teaching practice; and what are the challenges remaining to make analytics more helpful across all disciplines. Come along and share your own experiences from your course or institution, network with others interested in this field, and contribute to shaping the development of future learning analytics with Echo360.
