Students and faculty desire greater access to learning analytics, according to a 2014 survey of UW faculty and undergraduate students about their technology experiences at the UW. Additionally, students expressed an interest in personalized notifications on degree planning guidance, such as course recommendations based on previous registrations, and information on academic resources such as tutoring. The survey is conducted annually each spring by the EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) in conjunction with UW-IT. The findings are used to inform UW-IT’s future plans for improving the student experience.​
