Abstract

The expansion of online learning has brought about a paradigm shift in language learning as it provides numerous opportunities to engage in language learning across time and space which is in tandem with the wave of technological innovations practiced widely across the globe. However, limited studies have been conducted to investigate teachers' participation in this field. Thus, this study investigates the engagement and learning analytics exhibited by teachers in online learning. Participants were teachers taking an online language course. The study was conducted in a four-month period. Data was collected from LMS's course analytical content. The data was analysed using descriptive analysis. Data was analysed based on activity indulged, submission, and grades. As such, the study is to look into the patterns of online learning from studying analytics view and discover the relationships among factors such as activity by date, frequency of viewing times, and scores obtained. The study concerns investigating studying analytics of an online studying for teachers enhancing their proficiency with an enrolment of 29 teachers. The findings of the study display that high engagement of the teachers does not necessarily require a slower tempo of learning, while a decrease in engagement does not require a higher rate of learning. In a nutshell, the findings stated that the teachers' engagement in an online learning and learning analytics can't be made the sole measure of learning, as it could be associated to pace of learning considering the learner's autonomy.
