Abstract

The need to analyze student interactions in virtual learning environments (VLE) and the improvements this generates is an increasingly emerging reality in order to make timely predictions and optimize student learning. This research aims to implement a proposal of standardized learning behavior indicators in virtual learning environments (VLE) to design and implement efficient and timely learning analytics (LA) processes. The methodology consisted of a data management analysis that was carried out in the Moodle platform of the Faculty of Education Sciences of the National University of San Agustin of Arequipa, with the participation of 20 teachers, where qualitative online questionnaires were used to collect the participants’ perceptions. The results propose a standard in terms of indicators of behavior in the teaching-learning process in EVA as they are: Preparation for learning, progress in the progress of the course, resources for learning, interaction in the forums and evaluation of resources. These were evaluated through learning analytics and show the efficiency of the proposed indicators. The conclusions highlight the importance of implementing standardized behavior indicators that allow us to efficiently develop learning analytics processes in VLE in order to obtain better predictions to make timely decisions and optimize the teaching-learning processes.
