    Abstract

    Having dashboards for presenting the data of how learners are using an online course can be very useful for the teacher. Teachers can use this data to improve their courses and attract more learners. Current dashboards are usually set up to work with only one source of data. This can be a drawback if teachers have courses on multiple platforms. This project describes a new architecture and implementation, set for a more general dashboard that can be easily extended. The new system is platform independent which means new platforms (sources of data) can be added easily. A new part is introduced for data analysis which creates new derived data from the one provided by these platforms. There is also clear separation of functionality, that makes it easy to change or replace parts of the system and extend the current functionalities. This system can be useful to researchers as it contains data integrated from multiple sources. This integrated data can be useful for data analysis.
