U-M student success tool receives gold medal in global competition


The University of Michigan My Learning Analytics (MyLA) student-facing dashboard was awarded the gold medal at the 2019 IMS Global Learning Impact competition. Researchers in the U-M School of Information partnered with staff from Information Technology Services to create MyLA.

Students can use the dashboard to glean insights on their academic performance and make self-driven behavior changes. MyLA’s pilot in 2018 found that 84% of the 312 student participants reported improved course performance.

“This Learning Impact award is what can happen when you assemble a great team of people with complementary expertise and dedication to student success,” Stephanie Teasley, research professor at the University of Michigan School of Information (UMSI) said.
