Learning analytics explores the relationship between learning system usage and various outcomes, which can positively impact students, faculty, administrators, researchers, and learning system designers. To increase the productivity of students, learners, and faculties, governments worldwide are undertaking initiatives to promote education & learning analytics. For instance, in 2021, the Ontario Government announced an investment of $50 million in virtual learning and educational technologies to help expand access to high-quality, market-responsive, and globally competitive ‘Ontario Made’ education. Thus, growing government initiatives supporting and promoting the incorporation of education & learning analytics are expected to drive the growth of the learning analytics market.
In developing countries, governments are focused on encouraging educational institutions to adopt modernized learning techniques by developing ICT infrastructure and enhancing internet connectivity, driving the adoption of learning analytics solutions. For instance, initiatives by the Indian government, such as SWAYAM, E-Basta, Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA), Skill India, and Digital India are enabling modern ICT infrastructures needed by students and teachers in the country. Furthermore, governments of other developing countries in Asia-Pacific consider analytics an effective way for development across different sectors, including education & learning. Thus, supportive government initiatives are expected to encourage modernized learning, driving the growth of the education & learning analytics market.
Some of the government initiatives in this space are as follows:
- In 2021, the U.S. government passed a new law, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA), providing a total of $170.3 billion in funding for education. This funding includes more than $125.4 billion for state K–12 public education programs and $39.6 billion for higher education, with the remaining funds going to other educational programs and activities. The act also provides $7.2 billion in funding for the federal E-Rate program, which will be extended to provide devices and connectivity to students, educators, and patrons of public libraries.
- In 2020, the Australian Ministry of Education announced plans to invest $50 million through 2024 to support university-initiated proposals to increase innovation, capability, and efficacy in higher education. The ministry approved 35 proposals at 22 public universities in the areas of Digitization in Teaching and Learning, Learning Analytics, Skills for the Digital Age, Usage of Digital Transformation for the Social Dimension, Open Science and E-Administration.
- In 2019, the German government announced plans to invest $5.9 billion (EUR 5 billion) between (2019–2024) in digitalizing the country’s education sector.
