The data generated are presented in a series of diagrams.FindingsThis paper makes links between self-regulated theory and how e-textbooks are used by students. The findings also offer tentative support for the use of e-books platforms as both a learning resource and a mechanism to obtain learning analytics.Research limitations/implicationsThis paper contributes to the wider discourse of the use of learning analytics and how information technology may align with self-regulated learning.Originality/valueThis paper represents a contribution to the developing field of research related to learning analytics and how students manage their use of information technology.
