We are organizing this event in partnership with the Innovative Technologies for Learning Meetup group:

One of the biggest challenges facing the learning industry today is understanding what skills people need to learn, how effective certain learning solutions are, and how it impacts businesses. Learning-based analytics and metrics is a big opportunity for the learning industry than can help shape how learning is used and implemented both in businesses and people's personal lives. In this meetup, we will join speakers that will share their experiences using learning analytics in different ways. The topics addressed by our speakers include using learning analytics as a predictive model that provides actionable information to address skill gaps. We will also explore the interpretation of several data points to interpret the effectiveness of learning within businesses beyond the smile sheet.
