The essential difference with most other Learning Analytics is that this community college uses the data in real time to support the students while they are studying. Most other Learning Analytics uses are more like digital autopsy and are used to improve the process next time around.

Make student data over-the-counter

Make student data over-the-counter | Analytics and data  - trying to understand the conversation | Scoop.it
Much like over-the-counter medicines, student data should carry easy-to-understand labeling and guidance to help people use it properly.

 

Student data systems can help educators differentiate and personalize instruction, use formative assessments effectively and optimize districtwide tech initiatives. In short, they can revolutionize education.

 

Yet student data is only as effective as an educator’s ability to interpret it. Most data reports fall short because they are counterintuitive or difficult to understand.

Measuring Learning in Blended Courses

"Assessment is an important part of any course. We want to make sure that our methods are working and learners are learning things (correctly!).

 

One of the things that I love about the blended and flipped classroom movements is the focus on assessment through projects, discussion, and other non-test means. Today I’m going to take a brief look at formal and informal assessments, in addition to some best practices for online quizzes."

Why Learning Analytics should be your next bet in India

Why Learning Analytics should be your next bet in India | Analytics and data  - trying to understand the conversation | Scoop.it
Approximately 30 million students were enrolled in Higher or Technical Education in India in Year 2012-13. Taking an average $1 value delivered/revenue per student per month amounts to an industry size of $360 Mn. And this is just the beginning. As more and more students get on-boarded, the value delivered can be increased multi-fold by value added services.

But wait! Do we know how to measure success of all these companies? Do we have industry standard metrics to define their success criteria? How to drive adoption of new methods among traditional educators?

There comes Learning Analytics. I found a very interesting maturity model of Learning Analytics - The Kirkpatrick/Philips Model.

TIBCO SPOTFIRE est depuis longtemps précurseur sur le segment de l'advanced analytics à la portée de tous, notamment avec l'intégration native de R et de fonctions statistiques avancées (segmentation, prévision, corrélations, ...).

 

A l'heure où de nombreuses entreprises se posent la question du remplacement de SAS, essentiellement pour des questions de coûts et de complexité, et SPOTFIRE s'impose comme solution de substitution partielle ou complète dans bien des cas.

"In fall 2013, one in every eight students enrolled at colleges and universities in the U.S. studied exclusively online. One in every four students took at least one online course. Those and other findings, released this week in a three-part analysis by the WICHE Cooperative for Educational Technologies (WCET), suggest distance education is more pervasive in higher education than previously imagined, and may help debunk some of the common myths surrounding the medium."
