Predictive analytics is hot. Many tools are there to help institutions glean powerful data-driven insights and use them to improve student success and/or increase retention.
But this only works when there is a lot of student activity data available. Student activity data is generated when students are actively using Blackboard (and other technology). This largely depends on whether faculty actively use the available Blackboard tools to support their teaching and learning. If not, then little data will be available.
So, if institutions want to invest in predictive analytics (tools) they better make sure that faculty & student adoption are at an acceptable level.
