OCF DATA working with Jisc

We’re pleased to announce that OCF DATA has been successful in our application to be listed on Jisc’s Learning Analytics Purchasing Service. Jisc, the UK’s higher, further education and skills sectors’ not-for-profit organisation for digital services and solutions, created the service to enable academic institutions to access a ready-formed marketplace for innovative learning analytics solutions, services and infrastructure that could be used alongside the core Jisc Learning Analytics Service.  The Learning Analytics Purchasing Service reduces the timescale, and cost, of procurement, when compared to traditional static frameworks. The framework capability will see OCF DATA via Jisc provide solutions on ‘Learning Analytics’.

Lee Hannis, Director at OCF DATA comments, “We’re really excited to start working with Universities through the framework to raise student engagement and outcomes with powerful visual analytics. The way OCF DATA brings together business process understanding, data and technology means we can tailor high impact data insights to each University based on their current ability and strategic focus.”

“Our advanced analytics can help University performance across all aspects of the institution not just the relationship they have with their learning communities.  Importantly we can scale to bring on board any volume or variety of data and quickly embed this to improve the speed and effectiveness of decision making.  This is especially important as we now start to measure learning gain and employability across a wide variety of learning pathways.”

Phil Richards, Chief innovation officer at Jisc, comments, “We’re delighted to accept OCF into the new learning analytics purchasing service and are excited by the complementary skills and experience in data management and analytics that they can offer to customers of the Jisc Learning Analytics Service.”

“As part of being accepted into the purchasing service, OCF have signed up to our GDPR-ready mandatory data protection clauses, allowing us to offer a consistent approach to data protection across all suppliers in the Jisc LA service.”

“Much of the hard work around contract negotiation in relation to the upcoming changes in data protection regulations has already been done so institutions and suppliers therefore can spend less time on the paperwork. This means that students and staff can get faster access to new technologies to support attainment, retention and learning.”

The Learning Analytics Purchasing Service operates as a fully electronic Dynamic Purchasing System. Buyers can access the Learning Analytics Purchasing Service via the Jisc procurement portal at http://tenders.jisc.ac.uk (‘Opportunity Id: DN289989 Title: Learning Analytics Purchasing Service’).
