The topic of the proposal aims to develop an innovative e-learning toolkit for collecting, storing, exploring and reasoning on large-scale educational data to better understand learners' knowledge, assess their progress and evaluate environments in which they learn.
Our project aim at improving learning and teaching (including 21st century skills) for students and instructors. This toolkit should be equipped with intuitive interfaces for visualizing and interacting with the data in order to ease their integration into the practice of teaching and learning. Cognitive models of learning styles should be provided and tested against actual data sets that record inputs, behaviour and assessment outcomes. They should aim to use and develop standardised nomenclature and categorization for effective comparison of aggregate information from different sources.
Expected Impact: More efficient use of ICT for learning through the exploitation of learning analytics tools; Increased awareness on the benefit of the adoption of learning technologies.
