Pearson’s Award-Winning CourseConnect Adds Enhanced Data Capabilities
BOSTON, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Pearson today announced CourseConnect Analytics Edition, a new version of its award-winning online course library. CourseConnect Analytics Edition integrates with Pearson LearningStudio’s Learning Outcome Manager to track the achievement of student learning objectives and performance. This integration provides institutions that use both the Pearson LearningStudio platform and CourseConnect online courses with enhanced reporting and analytics capabilities.
CourseConnect courses can be used either stand-alone or mapped to any textbook. The courses are completely customizable and can be used in any learning management system. Based directly on clear course level outcomes and lesson objectives, course content is created by a team of respected subject matter experts, faculty advisors, course authors and e-learning instructional designers.
CourseConnect Analytics Edition provides detailed reports that show performance across courses, sections of the same course, by student, by course or by program. The data allows instructors to differentiate, by student, which topics can be learned at an accelerated pace and which require additional help. Academic officers can measure student and class performance based on predefined outcomes, which aids in the accreditation or re-accreditation process. Administrators can analyze trends across an entire institution and make strategic programmatic decisions.
“CourseConnect Analytics Edition provides instructors and administrators with an unprecedented level of data-driven decision making,” said Don Kilburn, CEO of Pearson Learning Solutions. “It’s an excellent example of how technology and content are being combined to empower instructors with actionable insights from data and analytics to improve student learning outcomes.”
