Abstract

This paper presents the outcome of a learning analytics project undertaken in an open and distance learning institution and based on a French module. It will also evaluate the usability of VLE learning analytics tools for language course designers. The paper is based on the analysis of data related to the engagement of a small group of students with online tools and activities, with a particular focus on online revision activities and interactive computer-marked assignments. It also considers how the quantitative data can be related to qualitative notions such as learner behaviors regarding online formative assessment.
