Our workshop at this year SEFI-conference in Copenhagen about “Learning dashboard for supporting students: from first-year engineering to MOOC students” has been published in the conference proceeding.
By applying learning analytics on indicators that are predictive for a successful transition and online course completion, students can be provided with feedback on in order to improve their self-regulation, hereby providing support during the first-year and in online courses.

For the first time we introduced our project STELA to a broader publid at the 44th SEFI conference in Finland. In our main focus is the transition from secondary to higher education using learning anlaytics.
The economic and financial crisis is having an important socio-economic effect in Europe and is threatening Europe’s economic growth model and employment and the sustainability of Europe’s welfare model. To counter the crisis, Europe should further evolve to a knowledge- driven and technology-based economy. This evolution however causes a rise in the demand for personnel with post-secondary education diploma, since many jobs in such a knowledge en technology-drive economy require at least a postsecondary education (Carnevale & Desrochers 2003). However, during the transition from secondary to higher education a lot of high-potential students drop out (Banger 2008).
