Let’s carry on the discussion that couldn’t fit into the limited time we had for the roundtable here.
Here are the questions from the splash page:
- What are the historical origins of “learning analytics”? Why do these suddenly matter?-
- What should we be measuring? How does that stack up against what we are
measuring? (How might “measuring” be a problem in and of itself?)
- Who does “Learning Analytics” well?
- Which ideas have shaped your thinking about learning analytics?
- How do teachers use the output from learning analytics? What are the challenges from informing instruction with data?
And here is the reading that was recommended:
