Christophe Acher's curator insight, June 18, 4:00 AM

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.

Analysis of distance education enrollments challenges myths about the medium | Analytics and data  - trying to understand the conversation | Scoop.it

"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."

Valid arguments exist for students to control data about themselves, and similarly plausible arguments suggest that the institution can claim ownership. This article explores both perspectives. To avoid win-lose solutions, institutions acting as "information fiduciaries" can reap the benefits of analyzing student data while respecting student rights.

What 6.9 million clicks tell us about how to fix online education | Analytics and data  - trying to understand the conversation | Scoop.it

In a paper published this spring, the CSAIL team outlined some key findings on what online learners want from videos. These include:


Brevity (viewers generally tune out after six minutes)


Informality, with professors seated at a desk, not standing behind a podium


Lively visuals rather than static PowerPoint slides


Fast talkers (professors seen as the most engaging spoke at 254 words per minute)


More pauses, so viewers can soak in complex diagrams


Web-friendly lessons (existing videos broken into shorter chunks are less effective than ones crafted for online audiences)

Stephen Bright's curator insight, July 29, 2014 6:06 PM

Analysis from MIT about the features of online videos used in MOOCs that online learners prefer. Interesting analysis for MOOCs but these features could be applied to videos used in any implementation of blended learning.

 

Also shows that the slick, production theatre videos with a highly professional look may not be the ones that students prefer to watch.

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.

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."

The  evolution of data storage has been very interesting to watch, I can remember buying audio tapes, then compact disks, them digital music downloads, now we are entering into a new technology like Trent Reznor's Beats, which allows full access to any and all music for a relatively small fee.


Other types of Data storage have evolved even more dynamically, evidenced by the following infographic.
