Learning Analytics

Measure and prove the business impact of learning.

Meaningful Insights from Your Learning Ecosystem

Getting the greatest value out of your learning and development efforts means understanding where it is working and where it isn’t. Today, powerful learning analytics platform solutions are transforming simple data about learning activities into compelling insights about their effectiveness and value, about workforce engagement and competencies, and about value and impact. When you don’t really know what is working and why, you cannot pivot, adapt, or correct.

Learning happens everywhere and every day across organizations—it is a huge investment of time and money. You need to optimize those costs. With connected learning analytics software, you can collect and standardize data across your L&D ecosystem to automate reporting, increase retention, and aid in the continuous improvement of learning and development.

Experience, Learner, and Program Analytics

There are three powerful dimensions of analysis and insight to improve learning and development. First, Learning Experience Analytics help you understand more about a specific learning activity. Learner Analytics, on the other hand, seeks to understand more about a specific person or group of people engaged in activities where learning is one of the outputs. Finally, Learning Program Analytics seeks to understand how an overall learning program is performing.

Expert learning analytics software solutions focus on four degrees or levels of analytics to improve learning outcomes.


Data gathering, tracking, and recording activities and values.

Data Evaluation

Assessing and evaluating captured data to identify trends and establish benchmarks.

Advanced Evaluation

Applying more powerful tools and techniques to identify causes and effects.

Prediction & Prescription

Identify future-focused insights and recommendations for enhancement actions.

Our multi-industry learning analytics experts can help you determine what insights you need to gather and explore, identify technical solutions to enable you, and assist your implementation and integration of those solutions with your current learning ecosystem.
