    "SYDNEY LEARNING ANALYTICS RESEARCH GROUP
    About
    The Sydney Learning Analytics Research Group (LARG) is a joint venture of the newly established Quality and Analytics Group within the Education Portfolio, and the new Centre for Research on Learning and Innovation connected to the Faculty of Education and Social Work.

    The key purposes in establishing the new research group are:

    Capacity building in learning analytics for the benefit of the institution, its students and staff
    To generate interest and expertise in learning analytics at the University, and build a new network of research colleagues
    To build a profile for the University of Sydney as a national and international leader in learning analytics
    LARG was launched at ALASI in late November 2015. The leadership team is actively planning now for the 2016 calendar year and beyond, with several community-building initiatives already in the pipeline, the first being a lecture by George Siemens, and the second is a new conference travel grant (see details below)."

Epistemic modal logic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  •  
    "Epistemic modal logic is a subfield of modal logic that is concerned with reasoning about knowledge. While epistemology has a long philosophical tradition dating back to Ancient Greece, epistemic logic is a much more recent development with applications in many fields, including philosophy, theoretical computer science, artificial intelligence, economics and linguistics. While philosophers since Aristotle have discussed modal logic, and Medieval philosophers such as Ockham and Duns Scotus developed many of their observations, it was C. I. Lewis who created the first symbolic and systematic approach to the topic, in 1912. It continued to mature as a field, reaching its modern form in 1963 with the work of Kripke."

The Connected Learning Analytics (CLA) Toolkit - 0 views

  •  
    "Connected Learning is a modern pedagogical approach holding that knowledge and learning is distributed across a social, conceptual network. It holds that when people forge, negotiate and nurture connections for themselves (between people, information, knowledge, ideas and concepts), learning is more powerful and sustainable.

    Ideally, such learning could happen anywhere. People would create Personal Learning Networks within a Community of Inquiry. They would use whatever tools they consider relevant to this process, and connect with whoever they consider relevant to their network... However, this open connectivism is difficult to achieve in our current educational paradigms. How can we help people to teach "in the wild"? Learning Management Systems maintain a dominant position in the education sector, which means that technical support is generally provided only for those teachers who choose safety over openness."

    "Awards for Excellence in Learning Analytics: Submissions
    The LA SIG operates an Awards program recognising excellence in the practical application of LA to enhance learning and teaching. A key driver for the Awards program is to create and share resources about effective LA practices. We want to give a voice to all who are working with LA to improve learning and teaching - whatever the scale of their endeavours. 

    To this end, all presentations from Award applicants are available below for viewing. (Submissions closed on 11 September).  We believe these presentations will form an important resource library around the use of LA in tertiary education across Australasia and New Zealand.

    You may view the awards submission criteria and other background information on the awards in the SIG Awards Program Information (PDF) and to find out more about LA-SIG activities, go here."

Threadz - License - 0 views

  •  
    "Built as a Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) integration for the learning management system Canvas, Threadz is a discussion visualization tool that adds graphs and statistics to online discussions.

    Online discussions provide valuable information about the dynamics of a course and its constituents. Much of this information is found within the content of the posts, but other elements are hidden within the social network connection and interactions between students and between students and instructors. Threadz is a tool that extracts this hidden information and puts it on display.

    The visual representations created from social network connections and interactions between students and instructors in a discussion assist in identifying specific behaviors and characteristics within the course, such as: learner isolation, non-integrated groups, instructor-centric discussions, and key integration (power) users and groups. By identifying these behaviors and characteristics, the instructor can affect change in these interactions to help make the discussions and classroom discourse more accessible to all."
