806 Using an LRS to Unify Your Data
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Friday, October 26
Data and Measurement
User data can be difficult to manage and track when using different platforms and delivery methods for your content. Data reporting across numerous sources can be disjointed, hard to centralize, and overwhelming to analyze in a meaningful way. Different LMSs don’t always provide user data in the same manner or use the same metrics; the same user taking the same course on different LMSs could create completely different user reporting.
In this session, you’ll discover how to use an LRS as a central repository for all user data and how that will benefit your builds. You’ll learn how to send data to an LRS using code. You’ll also find out how to centralize all data reporting and how that consistency in reporting structures increases efficiency and saves money when trying to extrapolate user data. Using two case studies, you’ll be able to see how even wildly different delivery methods can lead to consistent user data in the LRS.
In this session, you will learn:
- What a learning record store (LRS) is
- How to send data to an LRS
- How an LRS saves time and money
- How a flexible reporting system makes data retrieval and dissemination easier.
