FAQ Section

Learning analytics is the process of measuring and analyzing training data to establish a practice of data-driven decision making for enterprise training teams. In order to infer reliable decision-making, learning analytics rely on comprehensive data and insights from multiple sources, whether that be from your learning tech like an LXP, your LMS, or other proprietary systems, or from critical business systems like HRIS, ERP, and GRC software. When data is shared between these systems, and aggregated in one central hub, like a training operations platform, it’s possible to build reports that inform decisions.

If you’re looking to tell the story of your training team’s impact on the organization, chances are you’d like to demonstrate ROI. Building reports to do so is often a challenging, manual process that relies heavily on spreadsheets and coalescing data across systems and business functions. With learning tech platforms, like Administrate, it’s now possible to generate reports in one system because of data pipelines that share and pull insights from multiple sources while appending that data to the custom fields you create in the platform. Now, you can build reports that quickly demonstrate ROI.

The key features of learning analytics are directly aligned with helping training teams tell the story of their impact on the business. Most importantly, it should be possible for your team to rapidly interrogate your data, efficiently build reports, and distribute those reports to key stakeholders automatically because decision-making often needs to happen in real-time. So, when you’re looking for ways to maximize your data, you should focus on powerful reporting engines that can provide measurable, repeatable, actionable, relatable, and, most importantly, oriented-to-ROI insights.
