Parameters Teaching-Learning Methodology
Conventional Method Proposed Learning Analytics (LA) based method
Learning Time Fixed Increased Learning Time with 24X7 availability of teaching learning resources
Attention span Very short Fairly Large as it involves the learner throughout the process
Understanding ability Limited Learners are able to understand much better
Interaction Limited interaction (limited only in classroom) Enhanced and expanded interaction among peers and with instructors
Evaluation and Feedback Prefixed evaluation system and Limited or No Feedback provision Continuous evaluation with Formative and Elaborative Assessment and comprehensive Feedback mechanism
Motivation Depends on Instructor Learners are Self Motivated
Retention Capabilities Lower Higher as the learners are learning the concepts and applying in real life scenarios
Attainment Capabilities Lower Higher
Cognitive Ability Limited Enhanced Cognitive Abilities
Mode of Delivery Teacher Centric Learner Centric
Academic Independence Learners are confined to classroom teaching and learning only Learners are encouraged to use varied learning tools and techniques, think out of the box, and use unconventional ways of analyzing and solving problems. Focus on real life problems
Study type In general, do not promote collaborative/group study Promote collaborative/group study
