Jisc’s Analytics Labs, brings together a range of staff from HE, drawing on their strengths and experiences, to provide business intelligence for current questions and planning.  The initiative enables data visualisations to be developed by the UK HE sector, for the sector.

The first Community Dashboards cover topics such as student recruitment, destination of leavers, postgraduate research analysis, and identifying new benchmarking groups – all produced with striking graphics.
