  1. 1. Learning analytics in the LMS: Using browser extensions to embed visualizations into a Learning Management System Derick Leony, Abelardo Pardo, Luis de la Fuente Valentín, Iago Quiñones, Carlos Delgado Kloos http://gradient.it.uc3m.es TaPTA Workshop 2012 Saarbrücken, Germany
  2. 2. Content• Context• Problem description• Proposal• Discussion TaPTA Workshop 2012 2
  3. 3. Context• Life-cycle of learning analytics process (Elias, 2011) Data Process / Inter- Collection Analysis ventions TaPTA Workshop 2012 3
  4. 4. Context• Life-cycle of learning analytics process (Elias, 2011) Data Process / Inter- Collection Analysis ventions TaPTA Workshop 2012 4
  5. 5. Context• Visualizations are a common method to provoke interventions Visualizations generated with LearnGLASS TaPTA Workshop 2012 5
  6. 6. Context• The LMS is one the best channels of communication to deliver visualizations TaPTA Workshop 2012 6
  7. 7. Problem statement• New functionality in LMS is usually done by creating and installing a module• The installation is site-wide: affects every class in the LMS• There is administrative overhead• The module must be as stable as possible• How can we enable the deployment of visualizations in LMS without installing modules in the server? TaPTA Workshop 2012 7
  8. 8. Proposed solution• Two components: − At the server: Learning analytics service  In charge of generating a dynamic visualization − Web browser extension  Installed on the client side TaPTA Workshop 2012 8
  9. 9. Proposed solution• Learning analytics service: − Generating visualization to embed in LMS − Visualization can be static or interactive − The visualization can be personalized:  Different roles (learner, instructor)  Depending on context (location, time) TaPTA Workshop 2012 9
  10. 10. Proposed solution• Web browser extension: − Applying content script on two course URLs − Home page of the course  Embed a widget with the personal visualization − Page with list of participants  Embed a visualization next to each portrait  Only applicable if the user is an instructor TaPTA Workshop 2012 10
  11. 11. Proposed solution• Communication between components TaPTA Workshop 2012 11
  12. 12. Proposed solution• Our implementation TaPTA Workshop 2012 12
  13. 13. Discussion• Some issues to be discussed: − Unification of user identities − Fragmentation of client software versions − Dependency on the LMS layout − Security of the communication between components• Future work: − Test the components in a real scenario − Generalize the browser extension TaPTA Workshop 2012 13
