This session will provide an overview of the Open Academic Analytics Initiative (OAAI), funded under Wave I of the EDUCAUSE Next Generation Learning Challenges program, and highlight the development of a new strategy, referred to as an Online Academic Support Environment (OASE), for student interventions. The OASE leverages Open Educational Resources, self-assessments and interactions with learning specialists and peer mentors to engage students who are struggling academically and increase their likelihood of success. The presentation will also briefly discuss the development of an "open-source" predictive model and API for Sakai that will be released as part of this project. At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to 1. Develop and deploy an Online Academic Support Environment at their institution, 2. Describe the power and limitations of learning analytics as it is understood today, 3. Describe the best practices related to deploying learning analytics and related intervention strategies, and 4. Prepare to use the OAAI Predictive Model and contribute to its enhancement over time.
