The Intelligent Institution Event


The importance of having access to reliable and accurate data is widely recognised within the education sector. Data is at the hub of planning and financial forecasting and many institutions are now making use of scenario planning to model variations in student fee and other income sources. The use of learner analytics to improve retention is now well established in the sector but new technologies, such as machine learning engines, provide opportunities for a richer data set to inform decisions.
