Analytics: Changing the Conversation (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it

We live in an information culture. We are accustomed to having information instantly available and accessible, along with feedback and recommendations. We want to know what people think and like (or dislike). We want to know how we compare with "others like me." Just as analytics powers Amazon.com, Netflix, TheRestaurantFinder.com, and Yelp, it can support tools for student empowerment.

Is Learning Analytics A Game Changer For Enterprise LMSs? - e-Learning Feeds

Is Learning Analytics A Game Changer For Enterprise LMSs? - e-Learning Feeds | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Learning Analytics, just as with analytics in business, web or healthcare, has the power to empower the people in the training department of your organization with the information they need. Learning managers no longer have to rely on making educated guesses to determine the most useful components of a training module. Incorporating Learning Analytics tools within your enterprise LMS does that far more easily and efficiently.

Lecturer calls for clarity in use of learning analytics

Lecturer calls for clarity in use of learning analytics | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it


UK universities are monitoring students’ information to help them to improve their academic performance but are giving insufficient thought to the effectiveness of the technology they use and the rights of those they track.

This is according to Sharon Slade, senior lecturer in the Faculty of Business, Management and Law at The Open University, which is believed to have become the first institution in the UK to produce a publicly available written policy on the ethical use of student data for learning analytics – the practice of collecting and analysing student data with the intention of optimising their educational experience.

Work on a transparent ethical policy at The Open University highlighted concerns about technology and privacy

Stanford calls for education data science field; presents national road map to analytics success

In a truly comprehensive report, with advice and suggestions from over 800 teachers and administrators, a Stanford-led national Workgroup calls for a new movement in learning analytics—redefining the field and offering a seemingly scalable road map to success.

The Workgroup, report, and road map were developed, because as Roy Pea, the David Jacks Professor of Education and Learning Sciences at the Stanford Graduate School of Education and lead investigator of the report, explains: the technology behind analytics has progressed faster than education’s ability to use it.

Concern was also expressed about the metrics being used for analytics – how accurate and appropriate are they and could it be dangerous to base interventions by tutors on metrics which portray an incomplete picture of student activity?

 

A number of the participants had already been thinking in detail about how to tackle these issues. There was a consensus that learning analytics should be carried out primarily to improve learning outcomes and for the students’ benefit. Analytics should be conducted in a way that would not adversely affect learners based on their past attainment, behaviour or perceived lack of chance for success. The group felt that the sector should not engage with the technical and logistical aspects of learning analytics without first making explicit the legal and ethical issues and understanding our obligations towards students.

Humans 2.0: Seeing Ourselves Anew in ‘Algorithmic Cascades of Data’

Humans 2.0: Seeing Ourselves Anew in ‘Algorithmic Cascades of Data’ | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Sensors are cheap and abundant. They’re already in our devices, and soon enough, many of us may elect to carry sensors in and on our bodies, and embed them in our homes, offices, and cities. This terrifies people, Jason Silva says in a new video.

Who hasn’t heard of Big Brother or feared the rise of the surveillance state? But Silva says there’s an upside.

As the world is reduced to “algorithmic cascades of data” he thinks we’ll get what Steven Johnson calls the “long view,” like a microscope or telescope for previously invisible information and datasets.

Billions of sensors measuring location, motion, orientation, pressure, temperature, vital signs and more—each of these will be like a pixel. Seen up close, a modestly flashing primary color. But at a distance, individual pixels dissolve. Discrete points will smooth out into a contiguous image no one could have guessed by looking at looking at each pixel alone.

Exactly what image will our sensors reveal?

The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics

The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics | Learning Analytics in Higher Education | Scoop.it

“ Using data to drive learning outcomes isn’t a new concept, really. For as long as teachers have been giving students assessments, the assessments and results have been used by both students and teachers (even if only loosely) to determine how to move forward. What needs to be reviewed more? What was covered/studied well? Learning analytics takes this concept and kicks it up a notch. Well, more like a thousand notches, especially if you’re considering things like adaptive computer based testing that changes as students use it.”

I believe the move to large-scale adoption of learning analytics, with the attendant rise in institution-level decisions, should motivate us to spend some time thinking about how concepts such as validity and reliability apply in this practical setting. Motivation comes from: large scale adoption has “upped the stakes”, and non-experts are now involved in decision-making. This article is a brief look at some of the issues with where we are now, and some of the potential pit-falls going forwards.

We wanted to come up with a handful of data types that any higher ed institution pursuing learning analytics should have on its list — say, five key data points that really impact student outcomes.The search for data that impacts student success may lead to more questions than answers.

Most of these tools focus on analyzing student performance—but what if educators had tools that could measure the effectiveness of the instructional resources they’re using as well?

That’s the idea behind new analytics tools developed by an ed-tech company called uClass.
