Gilbert, AZ – October 18, 2017— Unicon, Inc., a leading provider of technology consulting, services, and support for the education industry, today announced that it has updated its LA Quick Start service to offer a guided path and the technology institutions need to start the learning analytics journey with confidence. Unicon guides institutions through a four-step process consisting of strategic planning / readiness assessment; establishing a solid technology foundation; connecting an initial application; and knowledge transfer for successful planning of additional projects and/or a full-scale learning analytics solution. Institutions that choose to connect an LMS have the advantage of visualizing student activity data, identifying patterns, and gaining insight with the Student Pulse.
“Based on discussion with our clients across higher education, we discovered that many institutions are still facing challenges getting started with learning analytics. Our four-step process is designed to reduce the complexity of launching a learning analytics initiative,” said John C. Blakley, CEO, Unicon. “LA Quick Start enables clients to collaborate with an expert resource on building a solid technology foundation, getting conversations started across various groups on campus, and acquiring the expertise for future expansion of their learning analytics environment.”
Unicon has been conducting large-scale learning analytics projects for the past several years, including strategic planning / readiness assessments for a variety of institution types. LA Quick Start was designed based on the experience gained from these projects, as a way for institutions to get started with low investment and no vendor lock-in. Unlike other vendors who implement their product and leave institutions on their own to manage/update the system, Unicon collaborates with institutions throughout every step of the project process. Relying on a trusted expert for support, clients gain the experience to confidently accelerate their learning analytics initiative.
