Hi all!

 

Learning analytics is a great thing to enable teachers and students to get more insight into subtle and sometimes hidden aspects of learning processes. Open Learner Modelling, as some sort of ‘tasty toping’, offers exactly that feedback to understand one’s own processes and to get an evidence-based evaluation of strength and weaknesses. There is a great body of research and tools available; I (Lea) want to contribute certain new ideas coming from the research field of intelligent tutorial systems, that is Competence-based Knowledge Space Theory (CbKST) and Formal Concept Analysis (FCA). In first release of the system, we developed and deployed some basic functionality, of which not necessarily all is visible, and a set of tools, perhaps simple tools, that were tailored for design studies and the basis of focus groups and liaising with teacher in Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, and Turkey. Primarily the tools have 2 purposes, the recording of learning and competence development (which is not always easy in technology-lean settings) and also the modelling of competence structures and nonlinear learning paths. So check it out, leave comments and feedback, or let us know your demands and ideas.

Lea's Learning Analytics Blog

Learning analytics, educational data mining, formative assessment - all recent buzz words in educational research. In principle, the idea is to find theoretical frameworks, models, procedures, and smart tools to collect, aggregate, analyze, reason on and visualize large scale educational data. LEA’s BOX is a research and development project funded by the European Commission. The project aims at (a) making educational assessment and appraisal more goal-oriented, proactive, and beneficial for students, and (b) at enabling formative support of teachers and other educational stakeholders on a solid basis of a wide range of information about learners. That means, LEA’s BOX is a learning analytics toolbox that is intended to enable educators to perform competence-centered, multi-source learning analytics. More info at http://www.leas-box.eu!
