In order to meet the challenges of a global context, nowadays universities can't limit their educational offer to on-site courses. To maintain their prestigious positions they need to design their own online higher education environment by using new technologies in a strategically way. Accepting this new educational orientation, several countries are encouraging technological development actions for education policy, either from government or from university associations (Cantoni et al., 2004).

The research aims to launch a debate on the renewal of university teaching in Italy and the introduction of a quality measure based on results, not procedures. Through the use of Learning Analytics techniques (LA), this project aims to measure, collect, analyze and report data on students in relation to different environments and methodologies, in order to understand and optimize the learning and the context in which this It takes place in a perspective of quality assurance.
