Most recently, components of an open learning analytics platform have entered our incubation process.

Elements of our Open Analytics Platform - the result of our Open Analytics Initiative - were recently selected as key components of the UK national analytics infrastructure provided by the Jisc.

Apereo is a global network, with member institutions on six continents. We seek to actively develop partnerships to further our mission of creating and sustaining software supporting learning, teaching and research. Our partnership with our sister organisation, the ESUP-Portail consortium in France, creates a network of over 180 higher educational institutions and partners. It’s a network where you can share experiences, learn from the experiences of others, and discover new collaborators.
