The ACRL Value of Academic Libraries Committee is pleased to announce the launch of the new Learning Analytics Toolkit. The Learning Analytics Toolkit is a freely available professional development resource that library professionals can use to learn more about learning analytics and how they intersect with academic libraries. In addition to providing foundational knowledge about learning analytics, the Toolkit provides users with up-to-date publications about privacy and ethics, student success, potential outcomes, sources of data, and examples of libraries’ contributions to learning analytics.
The Toolkit is a dynamic resource that will be updated as new publications and resources become available. The committee envisions this as a resource that will equip academic librarians to engage not only in learning analytics work but contribute to professional discussions about this emerging topic.
