learning analytics

eis uma proposta interessante -"OPENBLOCK...CLOSEBLOCK but what will still define education is the presence of (a) a teacher, (b) students, and (c) a set of agreed-upon goals that they work toward together."Encontramos uma previsão de que espaços e formatos diferentes mudarão o ensino superior, e desta forma, de simples transmissão a transformação seguirá para uma relação pedagógica diferente entre o professor e o aluno, a...

Learning Analytics, Big Data and other ribosomes - CFHE12
Randolph Hollingsworth, My Day: Posts
Body: Whether we in higher ed choose to look or not, we've got them: ribosomes.  Some roam free and some are bound in place - but they exist in every living cell and are best observed at the atomic level. So if we agree that learning analytics is more than just metrics projected on a ledger sheet, then we can envision the strategic plan behind the metrics... and how it can be revised or even destroyed.   In Jacqueline Bichsel's "Analytics in Higher Education: Benefits, Barrier...

MOOCs and the Teaching Profession
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time
Months ago I had a conversation with a friend of mine who works for an organization with strong ties to the charter school movement.  I respect him and a mutual friend of ours, and because I have a visceral problem with the charter school movement, I wonder how he and this other friend could have [...] [Link] Tue, 30 Oct 2012 18:29:23 +0000 [Comment]

Educational Entrepreneurs and the Future of Higher Ed, CFHE12
Randolph Hollingsworth, My Day: Posts
Body: As part of the Edfuture MOOC, we've been asked to consider this week the topic of entrepreneurship and commercial activity in education.  I was particularly impressed with the October 22 webinar with Debra Quazzo, founder of the QVC Advisors and an education investor herself. Speaking at breakneck speed, she showered us with facts about the transformation of higher education - and that the speed of change is dramatically increasing.  With slides labeled "confidential" s...

Analytics, and usage in Higher Education
Apostolos K. ("AK"), Multilitteratus Incognitus
It's week 4 of #cfhe12 so it must be time for Big Data and Analytics as the topic of discussion. It's interesting coming back to this topic of discussion because it was the topic of the first MOOC I took part in, LAK11, and it's a topic I've been thinking (or at least keeping on the back burner) since I was in business school. On of th things to keep in mind when talking about Analytics is that there are quite a few definitions out there, so, when talking about learning Analy...

MOOC Pedagogy – Waiting for Big Data?
Rolin Moe, All MOOCs, All The Time
I’m in a constant search to find documented discussion of the pedagogy behind the various MOOC iterations.  cMOOCs are not so hard; they are borne of distance education and most adhere to connectivism, which is a pedagogical approach in my opinion, a learning theory in the opinions of others.  xMOOCs are much more difficult; due [...] [Link] Tue, 30 Oct 2012 05:07:00 +0000 [Comment]
