The Promise and Challenges of Health Analytics

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

On February 24 I attended a workshop in MIT on the Future of Health Analytics. In a recent paper , Ausiello notes that health analytics has the potential to become the next frontier in medicine, driven by the confluence of three key revolutions: . Scientific collaborations will need to convene a wider range of expertise than are traditionally sought, including device engineers, front-line physicians, geneticists, and experts in sociology and behavior.

Reflecting on Learning Analytics and SoLAR

George Siemens

The Learning Analytics and Knowledge conference (LAK16) is happening this week in Edinburgh. I have great hope for the learning analytics field as one that will provide significant research for learning and help us move past naive quantitative and qualitative assessments of research and knowledge. Would you be interested in participating in a discussion on educational analytics (process, methods, technologies)? Not everyone was a fan of the idea of learning analytics.

Bravais 3.0: Taking Learning Beyond the LMS to Analytics & Personalization

Xyleme

Gathering intelligence requires tracking and analytics - enter the Tin Can API, or xAPI. This is a shame because that course contains things like procedures that could be leveraged in a performance support mobile app; it contains useful videos that your learners would post to internal social networks and it contains topics that users would love to comment and collaborate on. By matching these analytics to user profiles, the foundation for personalization is now in place.

So, how about if I share with you all how I got involved into the space of data analytics for online collaborative environments in the first place? As most of you know already, specially, if you have been following this blog for a good while now, I have been involved in the space of Knowledge Management, Collaboration, Change Management, Learning and Online Communities for over 23 years, having gotten started with Social Networking for Business in early 2000.

Collaboration and activation: the nub of the merger of physical and digital retail

Ross Dawson

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week used IBM Social Media Analytics on Twitter and Instagram to uncover the top 50 relevant fashion influencers, used Watson Personality Insights to work out how best to approach them, and invited them to be MSFW “insiders”, asking them what content would be most useful to them. The initiative is particularly interesting in showing how social analytics and engagement can help drive shoppers into shopping centers and physical stores.

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. But applying it on your own – unless you are an analytics genius – can be difficult. The instructor is Google Analytics Evangelist Andrew Cutroni.

But for all of his creativity and penchant for innovating—for getting this project and every other product to market on time and on budget—Clayton hated (and still hates) analytics.

Open Business – The Narrative vs. The Ruthless Measurement

Social Analytics. As you may have noticed, none of those really focus on measuring the use of the digital tools at our disposal, which seems to be what most social analytics efforts focus on at the moment. We can relate though to people sharing their stories, connecting, collaborating, sharing their knowledge openly with one another, to eventually produce better business outcomes by working together smarter, not necessarily harder. .

Openness: Why learners should know about, and influence, how decisions are made about their learning

George Siemens

Earlier this week, I delivered a presentation to TEDxEdmonton on why openness and learning analytics are critical for rethinking the future of education. My argument is that openness has not been oversold and that increased openness (of content, teaching/learning, analytics, policy, data, and technology) is really the only path forward for reform. The principles of open source include openness, democracy, access, iterative improvements, and collaboration.
