Manage Your Learning Goals
My Learning Analytics, or MyLA, allows you to check your course performance and view your progress towards learning goals.
Three views use data from Canvas to provide a look into effective study habits and how you can manage your progress.
How can I access MyLA?
The dashboard views can be accessed from the course navigation or from the relevant page view in Canvas, placing the information where you already go for course-related information. Look for this icon in your Canvas course:
Why should I use MyLA?
Most students who use MyLA report changes in:
- how they studied,
- their confidence that they understood the course material, and
- the way they planned their course activity.
How has MyLA been tested?
MyLA has been used at U-M in nearly 200 courses across university departments. Over 12,000 undergraduate and graduate students have used MyLA since Fall 2018.
