The Pulse

The Pulse provides a picture of what is happening within CSU with regard to learning technologies and analytics to enhance our knowledge, challenge our thinking and stimulate conversation about the use of technology/analytics in learning and teaching.  The Pulse is published three times a year and each edition explores a particular theme. The statistics and analytics are drawn from a range of sources within CSU including systems reports, surveys and case studies. Trends in Learning Technologies and use of Learning Analytics outside CSU are also highlighted.

Current Edition

The first-ever The Pulse looked at Assessment.  In this edition we revisit assessment, comparing assessments used in 201530 and 201730 and exploring areas such as the types of assessments being used, how many first-year subjects have low stakes assessments, how much are exams worth as part of total assessment and when are students busiest?  Outside CSU we take a look at UTS's Academic Writing Analysis (AWA) tool.
