Open Learning Analytics

George Siemens

While those sensemaking approaches won’t disappear, they will be augmented by data and analytics. Educators often find analytics frustrating. Or can analytics actually measure what matters instead of what is readily accessible in terms of data? All educators need to be familiar with data and analytics approaches, including machine and deep learning models. Open Learning Analytics. Learning Analytics Masters Program (LAMP).

New MOOC: Data, Analytics, & Learning

George Siemens

I’ve run a range of open courses on a fairly broad range of platforms: D2L, Moodle, Instructure, a mess of social media tools, and (most frequently) with Stephen Downes’ gRSShopper. This fall, together with colleagues, I’ll be offering an open course on edX: Data, Analytics, and Learning. From the description: In education, the use of data and analytics to improve learning is referred to as learning analytics.

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. We (Carolyn Rose, Dragan Gasevic, Ryan Baker, and I) have spent the last several months thinking through the course structure and format. This is a short overview of the innovations that we want to explore during the course. DALMOOC has been designed to model a distributed information structure.

Content as a Service

Xyleme

For better or worse, the development of learning content has been a one-way push process. As instructional designers, we create our learning products, package them up with all the content and media, wish them well, and ship them off to the LMS’s – never to be seen again. Once gone, we lose all connection and control of our content – and this has some obvious drawbacks: Content is replicated to each LMS. There is no way to monetize the content.

Creating the Connectivist Course

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

So the form was not something we designed and implemented, at least, not explicitly so. One was the beginning of open online courses. We had both seen them in operation in the past, and had most recently been influenced by Alec Couros’s online graduate course and David Wiley’s wiki-based course. What made these courses important was that they invoked the idea of including outsiders into university courses in some way. Why not learn content?

Ethical Codes and Learning Analytics

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.

Design Elements in a Personal Learning Environment

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In this paper I would like to address the core design elements in the development of a personal learning architecture being developed in the National Research Council''s Learning and Performance Support Systems program. The program draws on NRC''s research in other fields, such as machine learning and analytics. This is an area that includes content management systems, talent management systems, and the LMS.

When the Learner is the Teacher, Do We Need Instructional Designers?

Xyleme

It’s a new world out there for the Instructional Designer. When designing for mLearning, we need to put ourselves in the shoes of the user who is walking around with a very powerful tablet and/or smart phone. The camera, voice recorder, and collaboration features of the devices drive user-generated content that enable every user to be both teacher and student, and the device the collaboration space. Another thing to consider is how to engender user-generated content.

LMS vs. LCMS

While sometimes thought to be interchangeable terms, LMS (Learning Management System) and LCMS (Learning Content Management System) platforms share a few functionalities, but couldn’t be more different. An LMS will deliver learning, tracking course access, completions and test scores.

Open Content, Enclosure and Conversion

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Freedom One point of agreement I think we can find is in our support for 'free content', in the sense of 'freedom' expressed by Richard Stallman. Now it is evident that by content we don't mean (exactly) 'software'. Nonetheless, we can invoke the spirit of the four freedoms to come to some sort of understanding of the content regime we would like to foster: one in which we are able to access (consume?) The designation of 'commercial' must refer to a type of activity.

The Importance of Personalized Learning – Part 1 of 3 – K12

Personalization, and the technologies that support it, are innovations that threaten to upend the entrenched interests in learning content and technology. Each learner is guided to mastery of a subject in his or her own way with a different blend of content, activities, and tools.

Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

This article and work with Stephen Downes formed subsequent development of MOOCs and learning analytics. Details regarding cognitive processes, teacher actions, learner mindsets, design models, and social interaction remain rudimentary. One student creates an image to detail the architecture of the course. Content creation was still largely the domain of experts or people in positions of control. It’s a new course. It’s a new course.

What’s next for educational software?

George Siemens

Albums, books, and courses, for example, have a hard time existing as coherent wholes in a network. When individuals have access to tools for creating, improving, evaluating, and sharing content, centralized structures fail. This has been a core argument that Stephen and I have been making since our first open online course, CCK08. Early on in CCK08, we discovered that central discussion forums and learning content were augmented, even replaced, by distributed interactions.

2015 Reflections

Clark Quinn

Learning design is rocket science : (or should be). It’s demonstrably true that tarted up information presentation and knowledge test isn’t going to lead to meaningful behavior change, but we still are thrusting people into positions without background and giving them tools that are oriented at content presentation. While we still hear the drum beating to put courses on a phone, we’re also seeing that call being ignored.

What’s the next buzzword?

Clark Quinn

And, of course, we need to dig into the real affordances , not just the hype (PowerPoint in Second Life, anyone?). Also Analytics (I think Big Data is already in the last paragraph’s category). And of course, AR and VR are very much now. C’mon, folks, lets get together and work on taking your design approaches and tuning them up! Of course, I could wish we’re talking IA instead of AI, too.

I experimented with various blended and online courses (I remember, in early 2000, running a course in Groove – a P2P system since purchased by Microsoft – because I didn’t like the limited functionality of the web-based instructional systems we had access to at that time) and different types of media, video, and simulations. I find conference presentations, blogging, open courses, and interactions online much more satisfying.
