The Open Universiteit is a distance university that provides its education online. With Learning Analytics it is possible to collect the user-interaction events, analyse these data and provide more personalisation opportunities to the students. Continue reading
The 29-39th November 2017 I was invited to join the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission located in Seville, Spain. There, I took place in an expert task-force organised by the JRC which aimed to gather ideas for further development of the eTwinning platform.

The Hack@LAK18 is a pre-conference workshop of the 8th International Learning Analytics and Knowledge Conference (LAK). It is the fourth in the series of Hackathons held at LAK, where we encourage a hands-on approach to combining novel data sources in a realistic infrastructure for the benefit of Learning. The approach is multi-disciplinary, reviewed from all angles, self-organising and team building. Anyone is welcome to participate as long as they are motivated to be politely critical and work towards and expand common objectives.
Please feel free to bring along your research questions, datasets and methodologies to the workshop for incorporation in the multidisciplinary activities. If you would like to suggest open research questions that you think should be addressed at the event, then please see our Call for Proposals which is open until December 18. However, you don’t have to have submitted a proposal in order to participate!
The event itself will take place on March 5-9, 2018 in Sydney, Australia.
