EDU11: Transforming Learning Through Analytics

This podcast features a conversation with George Siemens, of the Technology Enhanced Knowledge Research Institute at Athabasca University, and Vernon Smith, Vice President of Academic Affairs at Rio Salado College.

Educators and administrators face difficult choices in response to calls for greater accountability and improved completion rates. Learning analytics can illuminate complex situations and help identify at-risk learners. Analytics, when coupled with open educational resources, the semantic web, and personal and adaptive learning content, suggest the prospect of systemic change. With the use of recommender systems, social networks analysis, discourse analysis, and activity trails, existing course models of learning may have a limited future. This discussion-oriented session begins with a review of current learning analytics in higher education and explore future trends and directions.
