Manuela Ekowo wrote for EdSurge about predictive analytics at the University of South Africa:

At the University of South Africa (Unisa) in Pretoria, the typical student experience could take place anywhere. As an “open distance learning”institution, students attending Unisa receive a course textbook and a study guide to direct them through course materials. If learning takes place online, students may use a learning management system (LMS) to log into their courses, and even watch live video lectures.
