Update on our data extraction experiences #jiscanlytics

With the upcoming Jisc Learning Analytics Network meeting next week I though it would be useful to share a little bit of our experiences so far with extracting data from our student records system into the Jisc LRW (learning records warehouse).  Ken Fraser, Business Intelligence Analyst, in our IS department has been leading the work on this. He took 10 minutes out of his schedule to share with me how things have been working so far, in terms of getting set up and using Pentaho Kettle for data extraction and validation in the LRW.

GCU Data Extraction Update, April 2017 (MP3, 7.5 minutes)

We are still waiting for our VLE data extraction – hopefully that will be happening in May, and we can start to really explore the data and share some more of our findings.
