The analysis of learner data in MOOCs provides numerous opportunities to look for patterns that may indicate participants' learning strategies. In this article, we investigated how participants in a MOOC (N=1,200), in which they must successfully complete a quiz in each unit, deal with the fact that they can repeat this quiz up to five times. On th...

Together with my colleague I like to call for submissions on the topic „Learning Analytics„. The contributions will appear as Special Issue of the Journal of Research in Innovative Teaching & Learning that is an open access journal published by Emerald Publishing Services. Please consider to send us a scientific contribution on 28th April 2014 at latest (http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/services/publishing/jrit/pdf/learning_analytics.pdf)
Project
The main goal of the project is to enhance a successful transition from secondary to higher education by means of learning analytics. To this end the project will develop, test, and assess a learning analytics approach that focuses on providing formative and summative feedback to students in the transition. On top of the development of a student dashboard, the project will develop dashboards for the student counselors and teachers, hereby disclosing a vast amount of information that can be used to improve counselling and teaching practices. To realize this ambitious goal the project gathers a multidisciplinary team of learning analytics researchers, educational technology experts, experts in the transition from secondary to higher education, and practitioners. Thanks to this multidisciplinary team, the project will tackle all the different steps required for the application of learning analytics: data collection, data analysis, data visualization, dashboard design, dashboard development, and last but not least the actual implementation and thorough evaluation of the learning analytics approach.
