Learning analytics is one of the most intimidating and misunderstood components of online training. You can’t improve what you can’t measure accurately. How can you provide your return on training investment (ROTI) if you can’t make sense of your numbers? Spreadsheets are just rows and columns of data. How does it all make sense, and how do you know what story the numbers are actually telling? 

Good news! Your learning analytics don’t have to be a mystery anymore. 

For over a decade, I’ve been committed to demystifying eLearning, and my recent webinar was designed to help you – the “not-a-data-scientist” – to better visualize and understand your learning (or any) analytics output. 

How? I’ll walk you through a step-by-step process that shows you how to achieve better data visualization by using a free tool called Power BI by Microsoft. BI stands for Business Intelligence, and that’s how you will feel – more intelligent about your numbers – when you start seeing what Power BI can do for you.

As a business owner, I completely understand the need for solid “end results” – and recognize that most people are not data nerds – you’re likely a CTO, training manager, or administrator that wants to understand and report your numbers accurately. Even if you aren’t involved in online training, but data helps inform your business decisions, this video is for you. 

Join me for the least technical “tech demo” you’ve ever experienced – a 15-minute introductory session to get you started using Power BI with confidence. I use Power BI daily to make sense of my company’s business analytics, and I’m happy to share what I’ve learned about this powerful free tool. 

I’ll give you some practical, hands-on techniques and tips to help you take the first steps towards understanding how Power BI does the heavy lifting of data visualization for you – so you can understand your data in a way that makes more sense than spreadsheets of numbers. Who doesn’t love a good graph or chart?
