SMM107 Putting Data to Work: Insights for Business and ID
4:00 PM - 4:45 PM Tuesday, March 27
Thanks to xAPI, L&D professionals have an ever-growing pool of data; but, in order for that data to give you more value than the traditional LMS-based data sets, you need to rethink what measures and analyses you want to employ.
This session will look at real-world applications of data (from xAPI and other sources) as a means to explore a variety of L&D and business-related questions in areas including performance impacts and design insights. You will learn more about the limitations of decoupling learning data from other business metrics, and how to create a stronger analysis by leveraging qualitative as well as quantitative data.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to ask the right questions of your data
- Why learning data on its own is not enough
- How to build a feedback loop for instructional design
- How to incorporate qualitative and quantitative data to build business insights
Novice to intermediate designers, developers, managers, and project managers.
