This article focuses on a comprehensive curriculum mapping process of an online competency-based Master of Health Care Administration program with an on-campus residency requirement to utilize an online learning analytics system. The curriculum mapping process involved university-wide learning outcomes, program competencies, course objectives, and summative learning assessments. Our curriculum mapping process allowed us to utilize the learning analytics system available through our learning management system. The results of the new curriculum mapping process indicated a significant change in terms of the alignment between courses and competencies, as well as the structure of course objectives and summative learning assessments. In addition, we gathered crucial information on student competency attainment and course objective accomplishments at the individual student level and the course/program level that will assist in future curricular improvements of our online program. The data collected as a result of our new curriculum map allowed us to respond to certain criteria our accreditation agency requires. This particular study may guide those online healthcare administration degree programs which intend to take advantage of learning analytics systems for continuous curricular improvements and respond to their accreditation agency requirements for direct measures of student learning or competency achievement.
