What a Tech Start-Up's Data Say About What Works in Classroom Forums - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

There’s big talk these days about “big data” in education—looking for patterns of behavior as students click through online classrooms and using the insights to improve instruction. One start-up company that manages online discussion forums for thousands of courses recently performed its first major analysis of behavioral trends among students, and found what its leaders say amounts to advice for instructors.

The Academic Library's (Potential) Contribution to the Learning Analytics Landscape

The Academic Library's (Potential) Contribution to the Learning Analytics Landscape | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
As higher education institutions deploy learning analytics platforms to better optimize student learning, the question of what data are collected and in which contexts arises. To fully understand the total student experience, data about student interactions with rec and wellness centers, student support services, and certainly academic advising centers are being collected and analyzed as they're added to the traditional classroom attendance and engagement model.

Yet, when institutions look at potential factors that might impact academic success, libraries may be overlooked.

Professors have mixed reactions to Blackboard plan to offer tool for grading online participation

Professors have mixed reactions to Blackboard plan to offer tool for grading online participation | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Blackboard is planning to introduce a new feature in its learning management system later this year to help instructors grade students’ participation in class discussions online. The feature, called the “discussion forum recommended grade,” will use computer algorithms to analyze students’ posts in class discussion forums.
John Whitmer, learning analytics and research director at Blackboard, said that instructors want to use discussion forums to judge students’ participation, but that doing so is time-consuming and difficult since the forums were designed for discussion rather than assessment. These discussion forums are often underused by students, said Whitmer, since there is often little incentive for students to engage

At the Australian International School (AIS) in Singapore, teachers are using research-informed strategies to support differentiation in maths in the elementary years, with a focus on extending those students who are at the head of the pack.

The project grew out of a push to improve the collecting, analysis, interpretation and use of student data. Mignon Weckert, Assistant Head of Elementary School at AIS, says examining existing data more effectively highlighted areas for improvement.

The Promise of Learning Data Interoperability

Key Takeaways


The current learning data ecosystem is a chaotic, increasingly complex jumble that is producing vast amounts of usage data that are poorly understood and poorly utilized.


To accelerate the move to the Next Generation Digital Learning Environment, we need widespread adoption of learning data standards across institutions.


Early proof-of-concept implementations by two universities illustrate the current maturity of learning data standards and how they address real-world problems.


To achieve standards adoption at a broader scale — and reap the considerable benefits NGDLE promises — key challenges must be understood and addressed.

ASCILITE TELall Blog – ASCILITE Technology Enhanced Learning Blog Post by Dr Danny Liu

At the University of Sydney, in 2012 two academics in the Faculty of Science started tinkering at an alternative, practical approach to learning analytics. Now in 2017, our learning analytics platform is in use by over 300 academics and professional staff across 17 departments in over 100 units of study, reaching over 20,000 students, and is being piloted at four other Australian universities. Its spread has been mainly due to academics seeing and hearing colleagues talk about its impact on their students and their teaching. What kind of learning analytics are academics so passionate about?

But can we measure it?

But can we measure it? | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
It’s often asserted that some things can’t be measured. But how true is this? And if we can’t measure something, should we stop pretending we can teach or develop it?

Can creativity be measured? What about resilience? Can we measure problem solving? What about ethical reasoning?

We take for granted the measurement of variables such as length, weight and temperature, but it is worth remembering that these variables and their measurement were human inventions. Albert Einstein made this point in the Evolution of Physics when he observed that ‘physical concepts are the free creations of the human mind and are not, however it may seem, uniquely determined by the external world’.

Learning analytics are web-based measurements and reporting about student learning that is intended to help teachers improve the knowledge and skill acquisition of their students. This maximizes student learning potential while enhancing teaching and delivery methods. Though its application to education is relatively new, scientific disciplines have been using it for over forty years. Expansion into scholarship was birthed by advanced technology, and the data trails learners leave while using the internet. The data provides several benefits to aid educators and students. In this piece, we will discuss those benefits. Curriculum Mapping and Competency Determination In curriculum mapping, we identify …

Keeping analytics do-able – ASCILITE TELall BlogPost By Mark Nichols

When it comes to successful interventions and solutions in education, it seems they’re either incredibly simple or diabolically expensive. Of course, sometimes the incredibly simple only takes you so far before you really need something diabolically expensive. I suspect, though, that in online learning we sometimes go straight to the diabolically expensive because the incredibly simple seems less innovative!  

Analytics is likely a case in point. I think there are some incredibly simple analytics systems we could propose as online learning professionals that require little or no new financial investment whatever. I'm certainly advocating that we push decision-makers harder for ambitious analytics systems and innovations. Alongside this, though, most of us likely already have all of the data and support we need for making significant improvements to student learning through analytics.

Postsecondary Trending Now: Predictive Analytics in the Spotlight

Postsecondary Trending Now: Predictive Analytics in the Spotlight | Learning Analytics, Educational Data Mining, Adaptive Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Many in the higher education community are intrigued by the value of leveraging institutional analytics to improve student success, and have been for a while. “Institutional Analytics in Higher Education,” a 2016 EDUCAUSE ECAR report, asserts that the aspiration to use analytics to make a difference for students goes back at least a decade.

Could the right combination of software and process reform dramatically improve persistence and completion rates for students — especially students from minority groups or low-income backgrounds? Many institutions are still not quite at the point of investing the resources needed to realize the potential of analytics for student success. That said, the current academic year has seen pioneering projects and early successes draw the media spotlight.
