Amy Loomis (Co-Founder & Program Director, IBM’s Think Academy & Digital Learning)
Amy Loomis addresses the issue of big data and the use of analytics in learning approaches. She talks about the difficulty of choosing the right analytic software that will provide needed insights to provide the most productive learning environment. She talks about the kinds of information that analytics can provide on both individual and organizational learning decisions including the best physical interface to use, the right language and tone. Despite all the technological advances in software and hardware and analytic tools, Loomis describes why it is still hard to have demonstrable proof that specific learning programs have been successful.
