Information systems have always been seen as an essential enabler for the success of the modern organisations. This is also very evident for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) worldwide. Driving by the need to improve student experience, Learning Analytics (LA) has been a rapidly growing area of interest in UK HEIs. However, there is very limited literature on the use and impact of LA in the Higher Education sector. This research aims to close this gap by developing a better understanding of the use and impact of LA on student experience management. A qualitative methodology is employed by adopting an exploratory case study and semi-structured interviews with key stakeholders across UK HEIs. This research-in-progress paper will provide background information, identify research gaps, explain the research methodology and process, discuss the preliminary findings and framework so far, and present the future work and expected contributions.
