[publication] Mobile Learning Applications for Android und iOS for German Language Acquisition based on Learning Analytics Measurements #LearningAnlytics #IdERblog

We did a contribution to the International Journal of Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Education (iJAI) titled „Mobile Learning Applications for Android und iOS for German Language Acquisition based on Learning Analytics

Abstract:
The use of digital media is increasingly being promoted in school teaching. Since this aspect changes the interaction between teachers and pupils, this research is concerned with the development of a prototype of a mobile application for Android and iOS, in which different learning applications for language acquisition are offered on the basis of learning analytical measurements provided by experts in the field. By logging and collecting interactions of the user, it is possible to create a variety of statistical evaluations and thus respond to the needs and weaknesses of students. For the evaluation of the application, a user experience test was carried out, whereby the child-friendly operation of the application was tested. Due to the very positive feedback, the design was found to be good and can therefore be further developed.

[press] Learning Analytics nützen dem Hochschulsystem, vor allem aber den Studierenden #highereducation

Das Bundesministerium hat eine Nachschau zur Präsentation des Whitepaper Learning Analytics veröffentlicht und dabei auch das Zitat von mir online gestellt:

„Wir finden, dass vor allem die Personen, die die Daten generieren, auch den unmittelbaren Nutzen haben sollen. Generierte Daten können aber unter bestimmten Voraussetzungen auch anderen Zielgruppen zur Verfügung stehen.“

[publication] Learning Analytics: Einsatz an österreichischen Hochschulen #fnma #LearningAnalytics

Unsere gemeinsaem Publikation zu „Learning Analytics: Einsatz an österreichischen Hochschulen“ versucht ein gemeinsames Verständnis für das Themenfeld zu schaffen und ist nun auch online zugänglich:

Zusammenfassung:

Learning Analytics ist sowohl international als auch national ein immer mehr an Bedeutung gewinnendes Themenfeld, welches dabei helfen kann, Lehr- und Lernprozesse besser zu verstehen und gezielt zu optimieren. Dieses Whitepaper soll eine erste Orientierung zu diesem Thema geben und dabei speziell die österreichische Hochschullandschaft adressieren.
Ausgehend von der Definition: “Learning Analytics umfasst die Analyse, Darstellung und Interpretation von Daten aus Lehr- und Lernsettings mit dem Zweck, dass Lernende ihr Lernen unmittelbar verändern können” werden Herausforderungen benannt und der Status Quo in Österreich präsentiert. Daraus werden sechs Argumente für Learning Analytics abgeleitet und vier konkrete Handlungsempfehlungen ausgesprochen.

[article] Efforts in Europe for Data-Driven Improvement of Education – A Review of Learning Analytics Research in Six Countries #LearningAnalytics #tugraz

I did an article with a hand of colleagues about „Efforts in Europe for Data-Driven Improvement of Education – A Review of Learning Analytics Research in Six Countries“ for the first issue of the „International Journal of Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Education (iJAI)„.

Abstract:

Information and communication technologies are increasingly mediating learning and teaching practices as well as how educational institutions are handling their administrative work. As such, students and teachers are leaving large amounts of digital footprints and traces in various educational apps and learning management platforms, and educational administrators register various processes and outcomes in digital administrative systems. It is against such a background we in recent years have seen the emergence of the fast-growing and multi-disciplinary field of learning analytics. In this paper, we examine the research efforts that have been conducted in the field of learning analytics in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Germany, Spain, and Sweden. More specifically, we report on developed national policies, infrastructures and competence centers, as well as major research projects and developed research strands within the selected countries. The main conclusions of this paper are that the work of researchers around Europe has not led to national adoption or European level strategies for learning analytics. Furthermore, most countries have not established national policies for learners’ data or guidelines that govern the ethical usage of data in research or education. We also conclude, that learning analytics research on pre-university level to high extent have been overlooked. In the same vein, learning analytics has not received enough focus form national and European national bodies. Such funding is necessary for taking steps towards data-driven development of education.

[publication] Learning Analytics Cockpit for MOOC Platforms #imoox #LearningAnalytics

Our article about an important extension for iMooX titled „Learning Analytics Cockpit for MOOC Platforms“ got publishes now. Enjoy reading 🙂
Abstract:

Within the sector of education, Learning Analytics (LA) has become an interdisciplinary field aiming to support learners and teachers in their learning process. Most standard tools available for Learning Analytics in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) do not cater to the individual’s conception of where Learning Analytics should provide them with insights and important key figures. We propose a prototype of a highly configurable and customizable Learning Analytics Cockpit for MOOC-platforms. The ultimate goal of the cockpit is to support administrators, researchers, and especially teachers in evaluating the engagement of course participants within a MOOC. Furthermore, comparing learner’s individual activity to course wide average scores should enhance the self-assessment of students, motivate their participation, and boost completion rates. Therefore, several metrics were defined which represent and aggregate learner’s activity. From this predefined list, stakeholders can customize the cockpit by choosing from multiple visualization widgets. Although, the current prototype focuses only on a minimal group of stakeholders, namely administrators and researchers. Therefore, it is designed in a modular, highly configurable and customizable way to ensure future extensibility. It can be strongly carried out that customization is integral to deepen the understanding of Learning Analytic tools and represented metrics, to enhance the student’s learning progress.
