Small is beautiful: an antidote to big data #altc2013

Over the past year Cetis has been spending quite a bit of time exploring the context and potential of analytics within the education sector.  The Cetis analytics series is our on-going contribution to the debate. As part of our investigations we undertook a survey of UK institutions to try and get a baseline of where institutions are “at” in terms of analytics (see this post for more information ).


sheilaI was very disappointed that I couldn’t go to ALT-C last week, but alas lack of funding meant I was unable to get to the conference this year. ALT-C is always a great networking event and an excellent opportunity to take the pulse of the education technology community in the UK F/HE sector. However the main reason I was so disappointed to miss ALT-C this year was that I wasn’t there to see my former Cetis colleague Sheila MacNeill win the ALT Learning Technologist of the Year award. So since I wasn’t there to congratulate Sheila in person, I’m going to do so now instead!
