My Learning Analytics Research & Data

The My Learning Analytics (MyLA) project supports research into student use of learning analytics. This means that researchers will access several types of data in doing this analysis.  


  • Canvas course
  • Student use of MyLA (clickstream data)
  • Student demographic information

Access to this data falls under U-M's data governance and has been reviewed and approved by data stewards. An IRB exemption (HUM00036927) has been granted.
