Digital Analytics Basics: Free Online Academy from Google

Beth Kanter

For many nonprofits, Google Analytics is the tool of choice for measuring traffic, reach, engagement, and action primarily because it is free. While it is somewhat easy to use, some of the more valuable features may require a little tutoring to understand and use. That training was either expensive or a hodge podge of low cost webinars and free video tutorials available on the web. The instructor is Google Analytics Evangelist Andrew Cutroni.

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Abstract The growth and development of learning analytics has placed a range of new capacities into the hands of educational institutions. The ethics of learning analytics will therefore need to be developed on criteria specific to education.

A Cool Old Study » Adopting The No Asshole Rule: Dont Bother If The Words Are Hollow. Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Adopting The No Asshole Rule: Dont Bother If The Words Are Hollow : Comments. I'm just wondering who "polices" the rule if a company adopts it.

Innovation in open online courses

George Siemens

In a few weeks, our edX course Data, Analytics, and Learning (#DALMOOC https://www.edx.org/course/utarlingtonx/utarlingtonx-link5-10x-data-analytics-2186 ) will start. Videos, simulations, and graphics now contribute to formal MOOCs often costing several hundred thousand dollars to develop. To address these challenges, we have adopted/developed the following approaches.

The Internet, Blockchain, and the Evolution of Foundational Innovations

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

A disruptive innovation is one that successfully challenges a traditional product or business model with a lower cost solution, typically developed by a small company with few resources. But the adoption process of foundational technologies like blockchain is gradual, incremental and steady, unlike the hockey stick adoption we typically associate with disruptive innovations. What’s the likely adoption process for foundational technologies like blockchain?

The future of higher education and other imponderables

George Siemens

Do you realize that the cost of higher education has risen as fast as the cost of health care? A greater portion of the cost of education is being pushed to students. UK is in the middle of a large and dramatic shift of education costs from the state to the student. Not all countries are adopting the aggressive UK model, but tuition patterns internationally (.pdf) virtually every region of the world, given increasing enrolments, rising costs and the ongoing.

Top 10 eLearning Predictions 2011 #LCBQ

Tony Karrer

Video galore. Learning Analytics 6. The availability of cost-effective resources to facilitate wide collaboration (including open source software that enables wikis, discussion groups, chat and even web conferencing) presents the chance for organizations to reconsider the effectiveness of the performance support being offered to their people. Analytics will be the buzzphrase of the year. It's also amazing how simple it is to capture video.

Reality mining, pervasive data capture, and how Big Data can create value

Trends in the Living Networks

In this explosion of data… the key thing is to add structure to it by tagging at the source as the cost of doing it after vastly more.”. Dawson said video was a good example of this, where not only the speakers in the video, but the themes and even emotions of the speakers could be tagged and used later in reality mining exercises. Tagging data at source is critical, as this is by far the lowest cost way to add metadata.

Beyond Free ? Open Learning in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

That might be a solution to the problem, one solution, but the problem is cost and access. It''s not addressing issues of cost or addressing issues of access, is it? Check these off if you just heard them: extended reach and access (to markets), build and maintain brand, reduce cost, that is the cost to the institution, and raise revenue for the institution, improve educational outcomes, I could talk a lot about that, and, of course, research and innovation in teaching and learning.

Evaluation of CL/4291 “Draft text of the Recommendation concerning Open Educational Resources”, UNESCO

I note that UNESCO’s definition of OER explicitly endorses no-cost OER. A variety of other definitions are available here: [link] The UNESCO definition is somewhat unique in that it required “no-cost” access.

The (Uneven) Digitization of the US Economy

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Digital innovation, adoption, and usage are evolving at a supercharged pace across the US economy,” notes the report in its opening paragraph. “As U sage has been steadily going up in digital applications like e-commerce, social media, digital payments, video streaming, e-filed tax returns and online freelance workers. Digital technologies are all around us, - increasingly ubiquitous and commoditized. But, are they a major source of competitive differentiation ?

The Management of Disruptive Innovations

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Unrealistic predictions are then made about the near term impact and rate of adoption of the new innovation, because the innovation in question is quite complex in nature, but the predictions assumes that it is on the simpler end of the spectrum. . But initiatlly, their costs were too high, so they were only used in consumer products that required relatively small panels, such as laptop computers. Digital audio and video is a somewhat more complicated story.

Future Learning Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Could these tools, combined with the increasing cost of higher education, lead people to follow an alternative model of higher education that does not require attending a four-year college or university? I think learning analytics, as currently conceived, are overrated. There may be some predictive value to these, but I think analytics needs to look at wider and more varied data, and especially, data outside the LMS. Then football players also spend time reviewing videos.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

They may be papers, lessons, diagrams and images, videos, or anything else. Finally, when I employ the term ‘free use, adaption, and distribution’, my sense of the word ‘free’ includes the sense of ‘without cost’. Costs can run into the tens of thousands of dollars. So in any given week of the MOOC, participants will be able to read text and watch videos that were either found on the internet, or to read text and watch video that was created by participants in the course.

Micah Sifry: Why the Net’s effect on politics has disappointed us

David Weinberger

My book focuses on two areas: (1) the changes in the political campaigning space in how they use tech, data analytics and their supporters, and how the role of the citizen in influencing the process has shrunk rather than increased. (2) 2) How advocacy orgs have also adapted to mass connectivity and mass participation, largely by using Big Data, analytics, A/B testing, etc., E.g., WhatsApp adopted privacy encryption for 100s of millions of users.

The 2016 Look at the Future of Online Learning

Listen to this, from the 'Context' section: "it it is not technology that drives adoption; it is the institutional strategy, the changing nature of the student population and the decisions of individual instructors and faculty members." Predictive analytics will grow in significance in terms of student retention and learner support. And we don't need predictive analytics, we just need good sensors and good calculation mechanisms - how many calories did my 13 km walk burn?

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: The Power of Power Laws

John Hagel

But it is not just social scientists who fall prey to this temptation to adopt a Gaussian view of the world. The large hierarchies that managers work in, and the procedures that they impose on their organizational members – the division of labor, single-point accountability, cost accounting, etc. – McKelvey and Andriani suggest that Gaussian distributions can morph into Paretian distributions under two conditions – when tension increases and when the cost of connections decreases.

the cognitive transaction costs) do not impede the collaboration process. Seeback and Kirschner deemphasize this result by mentioning, "But the negatives include lower scores on basic science tests, more study time and a pattern of ordering significantly more unnecessary tests at a much higher cost per patient with less benefit." In recent years, many groups of international researchers located primarily in Europe and the United States have adopted CLT as a theoretical paradigm.
