38 Survey Results: Survey Questions and Responses 42. Does the library partner on learning analytics initiatives with any campus units for learning analytics initiatives? N=48 Yes 18 38% No 30 62% If yes, please specify which one(s) and the nature of the work. N=17 Academic Technology Services (ATS) is a division within the Libraries. ATS is responsible for administering CANVAS, the library’s LMS. Out of the box, all instructors can see course-level analytics for the courses they teach.

Departments: we develop e-learning micro-courses that create learning data that is co-shared. Assessment and Research: quantitative statistical analysis and modeling of data. Campus units we partner with include Institutional Research (IR), Office of Assessment, Social Science Research Institute, Registrar, Student Information Services and Systems, and the Office of Information Technology.
