Won’t make the argument for why analytics are growing

“Imagination no longer comes as cheaply as it did in the past. The slightest move in the virtual landscape has to be paid for in lines of code.”

Latour (2007)


What s different today

What’s different today?

volume (apparently, there’s lots of data)

velocity (processing capacity)

variety (internet of things, social media)

variability (meaning variance)

“Analytics, and the data and research that fuel it, offers the potential to identify broken models and promising practices, to explain them, and to propagate those practices.”

Grajek, 2011

Reading a book (or any interaction with data) is analytics

Metrics or analytics on analytics are hard and contextual

Metrics, or analytics on analytics, are hard (and contextual)

What is the impact of effective use of data?

Argument: “more precise and accurate information should facilitate greater use of information in decision making and therefore lead to higher firm performance.”

Brynjolfsson, Hitt, Kim (2011)

Semantic web to social machines

Semantic Web to Social Machines

1. Roots of learning analytics and context of deployment

2. Becoming at data-intensive university


We collect enough data we need to focus on connecting

We collect enough data. We need to focus on connecting.

Multiple data sources:

Social media

University help resources

LMS

Student information system

Course progression, etc


Privacy as a transactional entity

Share my data to improve learning support from the university (school)

“All-embracing technique is in fact the consciousness of the mechanized world. Technique integrates everything. It avoids shock and sensational events”

Ellul, 1964


Leaping the chasm moving from buzzwords to implementation of learning analytics

Analytics as a complex system:

multiple interacting entities,

more meaningful when connected


Leaping the chasm moving from buzzwords to implementation of learning analytics

Challenges:

Broadening scope of data capture

- data outside of the current model of LMS

- sociometer: Choudhury & Pentland (2002)

- classroom/library/support services,

- quantified self

Timeliness of data (real-time analytics)


Three communities that don t communicate

What does a data intensive university look like

What does a data-intensive university look like?

Kron, et al (2011)


Leaping the chasm moving from buzzwords to implementation of learning analytics

Acquisition: how do we get the data – structured and unstructured?

Storage: how do we store large quantities?

Cleaning: how do we get the data in a working format

Integration: How do we “harmonize” varying data sets together

Analysis: which tools and methods should be used?

Representation/visualization: tools and methods to communicate important ideas

“A university where staff and students understand data and, regardless of its volume and diversity, can use it and reuse it, store and curate it, apply and develop the analytical tools to interpret it.”


Principles of a systems wide analytics tool

Principles of a systems-wide analytics tool

1. Algorithms should be open, customizable for context

2. Students should see what the organization sees

3. Analytics engine as a platform: open for all researchers and organizations to build on

4. Connect analytics strategies and tools: APIs

5. Integrate with existing open tools

6. Modularized and extensible
