  • Overview of Learning Analytics & Educational Data Mining Ryan Baker, IEDMS George Siemens, SoLAR
  • Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • -Build the field of Learning Analytics through cross-disciplinary interactions, identification of research and teaching needs, advancement of LA methods, and connecting isolated researchers and research communities. -Develop the skills and knowledge of doctoral students and academics, equipping them to engage actively in LA research and teaching. Why LASI?
  • LASI Locals (consider running one next year) -Hong Kong, Denmark, South Africa, Latin America, France, Spain (Granada & Madrid), Scotland, Australia, Netherlands Thanks to Simon Buckingham Shum for organizing
  • Thanks: Charles, Garron for hard work behind the scenes Dragan, Mykola, for an outstanding program Grace for admin/organization
  • Thanks:
  • Next year: MIT
  • Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • What is SoLAR? Scientific organization promoting high quality research in data and analytics generated through the learning process
  • What does SoLAR do? LAK JLA LASI OLA LAMP
  • Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • What is the EDM Society? Supports collaboration and scientific research in mining big data from educational contexts
  • What does IEDMS do? EDM conference JEDM EDM-ANNOUNCE/EDM-DISCUSS Supporting role in LASI, OLA, LAMP
  • Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • Types of EDM method (Baker & Siemens, in press; building off Baker & Yacef, 2009) • Prediction • Structure Discovery • Relationship mining • Distillation of data for human judgment • Discovery with models
  • Types of EDM method (Baker & Siemens, in press; building off Baker & Yacef, 2009) • Prediction – Classification – Regression – Latent Knowledge Estimation
  • Types of EDM method (Baker & Siemens, in press; building off Baker & Yacef, 2009) • Structure Discovery – Clustering – Factor Analysis – Domain Structure Discovery – Network Analysis
  • Types of EDM method (Baker & Siemens, in press; building off Baker & Yacef, 2009) • Relationship mining – Association rule mining – Correlation mining – Sequential pattern mining – Causal data mining
  • Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • What is happening in LA? Dawson et al 2014
  • Dawson et al 2014
  • Trends Maturation of research Growing impact on practice Increased computer science representation
  • What is happening in EDM? • A lot of classification and regression • Increased emphasis on latent knowledge estimation and knowledge structure discovery • Reduced emphasis on relationship mining Baker & Inventado, in press
  • What is happening in EDM? • Broadening range of constructs studied – Meta-cognition – Affect – Engagement – Motivation – Long-Term Participation • Increased number of discovery with models analyses Baker & Inventado, in press
  • What is happening in EDM? • Basic research • Automated intervention • And increasingly, we’re learning from LAK and getting into reporting
  • What is happening in EDM? • Increased participation of industry; industry track • Workshops
  • Agenda Intro SoLAR IEDMS What do EDM/LA researchers do? State of the field Going Forward
  • What do we need to be doing better?
  • To advance as a field, LA researchers and practitioners need to address the following: (a) development of new tools, techniques, and people; (b) data: openness, ethics, and scope; (c) target of analytics activity; and (d) connections to related fields and practitioners.
  • Challenges that we face Public pushback Broadening scope of data Creating strategic links to related academic/research communities
