The fields of teaching and learning are evolving as a result of new techniques like blended-, online-, and exploratory learning being implemented. Lecturers need to ensure successful teaching and also create an environment in which students can learn effectively. Two important factors that a lecturer can control to enhance learning are instruction and feedback. A learning analytics system was developed for the latter, utilizing mathematical programming models, which enables a lecturer to provide real-time progress feedback to students at regular intervals during the course of a program. This paper highlights flaws identified in some existing feedback scenarios, discusses the development of an electronic feedback system, and explains how its implementation can keep students informed on their progress from an early stage of instruction and present them with actionable targets for reaching their ultimate goal
