Abstract

This brief paper describes a student-centered approach to the research and development of pedagogical learning analytics solutions. The context of the study is a national Finnish Ministry of Education and Culture funded learning analytics project, in which eleven Finnish HEIs partner in developing a roadmap for the scalable use of learning analytics in universities of applied sciences. The paper outlines the arguments for student-centered development of learning analytics in order to better cater for students’ needs. The project adopted a co-creation methodology combining focus group interviews and rapid prototyping, to perform the needs analysis together with the students. This paper describes the application of this methodology, presents initial observations from the study, and outlines the next steps of the research project.
