Abstract

Besides providing students with different representations of knowledge and enhancing interaction among teachers and students, VLEs store a vast amount of students' data with a great potential value. When adequately analyzed and reported this data can equip educators with a powerful tool to monitor how a class is doing and to react timely. Using the lessons learned in business environment, we designed two information dashboards for monitoring the key performance indicators of students' performance within Moodle VLE. Some implications of this kind of advanced data analysis and reporting are presented also. Ill. 6, bibl. 19 (in English; abstracts in English and Lithuanian).
