In education, analytics is very popular term which is used to measure and analyze the learner’s data to make appropriate improvements in learning and teaching designs.

One year data from April 2015 to April 2016 is being acquired and examined based on learner’s parameter. In particular design attributes have been proposed for future applications to make them learner-centered.
