Recommendations for further work

This is an informal report outlining the likely recommendations from the Activity Data projects to help JISC to determine future work in the area. This is not intended as a public document, but rather to stimulate discussion and lead to a more formal document at a later stage.
There are two things to note at this stage:
  • The greatest impact (and ROI) will be in the support of student success. This is one of the wide varieties of end uses of activity data within UK HE;, as exemplified by the range of projects in this programme. We strongly recommend this as one of the components of any future funding.
  • We suggest that the next call explicitly funds other universities to pick up of the techniques and / or software systems that have been developed in this programme. This to if they are useful beyond the initial institution, and in this process, discover what the issues may be to make effective use of the techniques and / or systems in a broader context. However, this may not be in accordance with JISC’s standard practice and is not an essential part of the recommendations.
The recommendations appear under the following topic areas:
Projects in the current Programme addressed the first three of these topics thus:
Project
Student success
User experience
Service and system improvement.
