9:50 AM Learning analytics for MOOC and blended courses – unlocking dynamic power of learning database to enable informed culture of learning environment

Education has gone through some transformative changes since the launching of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) in 2012. The impacts of MOOCs go beyond just the offering of courses and content. MOOC platforms allow vast amount of data to be collected on the study patterns of diverse groups of students from around the world. Learning analytics on MOOCs allow teachers to better understand how students learn and how the delivery of teaching and learning can be improved. A visual analytic system has been developed at HKUST for visualizing video clickstream data and performing social network analysis of forum data from MOOCs. In the presentation, prof. Pong will share HKUST’s experience on using learning analytics to enhance the learning experience of students in MOOCs and blended learning courses on campus
