ORLA (Online Resource for Learning Analytics) is the National Forum’s open-access, online library of guides and manuals, covering key topics relating to learning analytics. It comprises over 30 resources that were developed in partnership with over 60 experts from across the Irish higher education sector.
ORLA is designed to provide key supports and information both to teaching staff who wish to use learner data as a resource to support their teaching practice and to institutional leaders who wish to design and drive effective, informed institutional strategies for data use. The resources in ORLA are structured for these two cohorts, but access to the full suite of resources is also available.
ORLA also includes a range of case studies, showing how Irish teaching staff are currently availing of learner data to enhance their own pedagogy.
