For instance, the learning analytics stakeholders comprise software providers, platform providers, institutions, faculty, students, and the government.
- Learning analytics demand has increased due to the vast data set of varied information (big data). The growing data needs to be clustered (for similar traits) to offer a real-time insight for a decision support system based on data using mathematics, statistics, predictive modeling, and other streams.
- An increase in the massive open online courses (MOOC) content and a large number of higher education institutions making their courses available through the internet to a global student base has acted as a catalyst for the learning analytics adoption.

Learning management systems (LMS) help in offered course analysis, student retention, modeling the patterns of success and failures, and improving the learner’s efficiency. It does so without adding to the cost, as learning analytics uses the existing resources for generating data used for various analytical approaches. This has augmented the demand for learning analytics. It serves as the base and platform for the next level of analytics implementation, generally termed as academic analytics.
- Moreover, the COVID-19 crisis has resulted in schools being shut all across the world. Globally, over 1.2 billion children are out of the classroom. As a result, education has changed dramatically, with the notable rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms.
