Higher education institutions urgently require strategies for the use of emergent technologies such as learning analytics. The University of Strathclyde achieved this through an exploratory piloting structure and process. A Learning Analytics Strategy Group oversaw the use of learning analytics in five diverse classes across all four faculties, capturing evidence of impact on learning, teaching and student success. This evidence, combined with a wide range of literature, was used to develop the institutional strategy. Components of the strategy document, in addition to the keys to success and lessons learned from this approach, will be discussed.
