Brennan, Amelia; Sharma, Akshay; Munguia, Pablo – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2019
A common use of technology in higher education is the provision of online course materials, invoking an investigation of the ways in which students engage with online course content, and how their participation changes over time. This is particularly necessary in the context of high absenteeism from lectures, where online access may be the only…

Dollinger, Mollie; Liu, Danny; Arthars, Natasha; Lodge, Jason M. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2019
The value of technology lies not only with the service or functionality of the tool, but also with its subsequent value to the people who use it. New learning analytics (LA) software and platforms for capturing data and improving student learning are frequently introduced; however, they suffer from issues of adoption and continued usage by…

Trezise, Kelly; Ryan, Tracii; de Barba, Paula; Kennedy, Gregor – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2019
Rural teachers and educators are increasingly called upon to build partnerships with families who use languages other than English in the home (US DOE, 2016). This is equally true for rural schools, where the number of multilingual families is small, and the language and cultural backgrounds of students differs from those of school. This article…

Khosravi, Hassan; Kitto, Kirsty; Williams, Joseph Jay – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2019
This paper presents a platform called RiPPLE (Recommendation in Personalised Peer-Learning Environments) that recommends personalized learning activities to students based on their knowledge state from a pool of crowdsourced learning activities that are generated by educators and the students themselves. RiPPLE integrates insights from…

Atapattu, Thushari; Falkner, Katrina – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2018
Lecture videos are amongst the most widely used instructional methods within present Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and other digital educational platforms. As the main form of instruction, student engagement behaviour, including interaction with videos, directly impacts the student success or failure and accordingly, in-video dropouts…

Shum, Simon Buckingham; Sándor, Ágnes; Goldsmith, Rosalie; Bass, Randall; McWilliams, Mindy – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
When used effectively, reflective writing tasks can deepen learners' understanding of key concepts, help them critically appraise their developing professional identity, and build qualities for lifelong learning. As such, reflective writing is attracting substantial interest from universities concerned with experiential learning, reflective…

Gaševic, Dragan; Jovanovic, Jelena; Pardo, Abelardo; Dawson, Shane – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2017
The use of analytic methods for extracting learning strategies from trace data has attracted considerable attention in the literature. However, there is a paucity of research examining any association between learning strategies extracted from trace data and responses to well-established self-report instruments and performance scores. This paper…

Thompson, Darrall G. – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2016
This paper attempts to address the possibility of real change after a hundred years of exam-based assessments that produce a single mark or grade as feedback on students' progress and abilities. It uses visual feedback and analysis of graduate attribute assessment to foreground the diversity of aspects of a student's performance across subject…

Colthorpe, Kay; Zimbardi, Kirsten; Ainscough, Louise; Anderson, Stephen – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
It is well established that a student's capacity to regulate his or her own learning is a key determinant of academic success, suggesting that interventions targeting improvements in self-regulation will have a positive impact on academic performance. However, to evaluate the success of such interventions, the self-regulatory characteristics of…

Kovanovic, Vitomir; Gaševic, Dragan; Dawson, Shane; Joksimovic, Srecko; Baker, Ryan S.; Hatala, Marek – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2015
With widespread adoption of Learning Management Systems (LMS) and other learning technology, large amounts of data--commonly known as trace data--are readily accessible to researchers. Trace data has been extensively used to calculate time that students spend on different learning activities--typically referred to as time-on-task. These measures…

Ferguson, Rebecca; Macfadyen, Leah P.; Clow, Doug; Tynan, Belinda; Alexander, Shirley; Dawson, Shane – Journal of Learning Analytics, 2014
A core goal for most learning analytic projects is to move from small-scale research towards broader institutional implementation, but this introduces a new set of challenges because institutions are stable systems, resistant to change. To avoid failure and maximize success, implementation of learning analytics at scale requires explicit and…
