Findings from the data collected indicate that most respondents agreed that there is readiness on adapting Learning Analytics. This shows that Learning Analytics is usable, there’s management support, availability of finances to support Learning Analytics adoption, and adequate system integration to give room for the adoption of learning analytics tools with the existing systems.
