Analysis and Support of MOOCs

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

With respect to the analysis of the networked interactions, it's not clear to me that we should even be doing this, at least, not in the sense suggested by the question. My contributions to the Network Learning 'Hot Seat' addressing the question, "How do we analyse and support the networked interactions of thousands of people learning together?"

An analysis of the value of the ways of learning at work

Jane Hart

The Learning in the Workplace survey (which asks respondents to rate 12 different ways of learning at work as Not Important (N), Quite Important (Q), Very Important (V) or Essential (E)) has been running since 2010 and now that it has had over 7,500 responses there is enough data to provide a more in-depth analysis of the ways […].

Wisconsin Recall Analysis

Nine Shift

Too early for a rationale analysis of the Wisconsin recall, but here's initial thoughts. Wisconsin the big loser, as the state continues its downward economic path. The brain drain will continue to cost the state its best young talent. -No No clear impact on other elections. Tea Party still strong. Unclear whether the loss is a victory or long term loss for the Tea Party. Unclear about the future fight left, and next strategy, for the advocates of the 21st Century.

In this part of the analysis, I am going to look […].

The celebrity analysis that killed celebrity analysis

Mind Hacks

Most ‘psy’ professionals are banned by their codes of conduct from conducting ‘celebrity analysis’ and commenting on the mental state of specific individuals in the media. This is a sensible guideline but I didn’t realise it was triggered by a specific event. Publicly commenting on a celebrity’s psychological state is bad form.

Cognitive Task Analysis

Clark Quinn

A technique for doing that is Cognitive Task Analysis (CTA). If you’ve got performances that absolutely have to be right, you’ll want to do the analysis ala CTA, and use it to decide what really needs to be in training, checklists , etc. While I argue strongly for stepping away more frequently from formally structured learning, not least because we overuse it, there are times when it is crucial.

Traditional Data Analysis and Data Science

Domain expertise is also needed to be able to draw the proper conclusions from their analysis, and to communicate their findings to business leaders in their own terms. . In addition to their multidisciplinary skills, data scientists bring increased breadth and depth to the analysis of these different sources of information compared to traditional analyst roles, as described in this short article in IBM’s website, So what does a data scientist do? : .

Wisconsin Elections Analysis

Nine Shift

August 9, night of the local recall. We lose big. GOP spends $30 million on just one rural senate district race. Yet the energy and spirit at the "losing" headquarters is so positive, you get the sense we won. August 10, day after the recalls of Republicans. Major depression. We took away two Republican Senate seats, but missed by one on reclaiming a Democratic majority to block Walker's extreme right wing/ Tea Party agenda. August 16, night of the recalls of Democrats. We win!

Wisconsin Protests: Election Analysis

Nine Shift

Just my personal analysis of yesterday's election non-results. In case you have not heard, as of this writing the Supreme Court race too close to call. Recounts likely. TOO BAD. I thought Kloppenburg would win, and win by a good margin. MORAL VICTORY. On the other hand, changing the minds of thousands of Wisconsin voters in just three months, a positive sign about the ongoing fight. GOOD NEWS. We were outspent by big rich guys by over one million dollars.

Wisconsin Protests: Latest Analysis

Nine Shift

The Wisconsin protests are a wonderful symbolic as well as real battle between the last century and this century. The battle is more than union versus anti-union. It is high school graduates (most Wisconsin people) versus college graduates (60% of state workers). It is cars versus trains. It is, most of all, Gen Y versus old people- Baby Boomers. Here's some of my pictures from the big rally that made national and international news. Click on them to enlarge them

Power analysis of a typical psychology experiment

Mind Hacks

Since it is a common test, I’ve been doing a power analysis for a two-sample (two-sided) t-test, for small, medium and large effects (as conventionally defined ). What this means is that if you don’t have a large effect, studies with between groups analysis and an n of less than 60 aren’t worth running. You really should prefer within-sample analysis, whenever possible (power analysis of this left as an exercise).

Analysis of a folksonomic protest

David Weinberger

There are many, many ways that effective Twitter analysis could be highly valuable for events.

Reality check: intelligence agencies have been using social network analysis since the 1990s

Trends in the Living Networks

I fail to understand why this is big news, since US intelligence agencies have been using social network analysis (SNA) for domestic purposes since the 1990s, and likely even before that. Certainly recent revelations suggest the NSA appears to have data surveillance capabilities that exceed those of US domestic intelligence agencies, but there is no good reason to imagine the CIA, among others, doesn’t have access to equally good data to seed its social network and other analysis.

Pew Research Center: great surveys, clueless analysis

Nine Shift

Unfortunately, the Pew folks are fairly clueless about the analysis of their own great surveys. In yesterday's blog entry, we talked about a great new study on the Generation Gap as reported by the Pew Research Center. For example, with regard to the Generation Gap survey results, Paul Taylor, director of the demographic trends project, said that the "generation gap in 2009 seems to be more tepid in nature than it was in the 1960s, when younger people built a defiant counterculture."

From character analysis to orgasm batteries

Mind Hacks

The point of contention was that Reich favoured analysing the personality as a whole, rather than individual symptoms, using a system he developed call ‘character analysis’ His system had a massive impact on psychoanalysis but as time went on he became more and more radical to the point of seeming to have lost his marbles.

Does Rigorous Data Analysis Thwart Effective Storytelling by Non-Profits?

Her most controversial point was: “Rigorous data gathering and analysis can get in the way of effective storytelling by non-profits.”. ” Deborah is concerned that the permission to “relax” will encourage sloppiness in data research methods, although we all did agree that nonprofits do not need to do the kind of quantitative analysis that is has to pass peer reviews in order to be accepted by an academic journal.
