Theory and Applications

We can believe that the data include useful knowledge. Text mining techniques have been studied aggressively in order to extract the knowledge from the data since late 1990s. Even if many important techniques have been developed, the text mining research field continues to expand for the needs arising from various application fields. This book is composed of 9 chapters introducing advanced text mining techniques. Research projects : Melbourne CSHE. UNSW Learning Analytics & Data Science in Education Research Group.

Key Takeaways Applying the principles of business intelligence analytics to academia promises to improve student success, retention, and graduation rates and demonstrate institutional accountability.

The Signals project at Purdue University has delivered early successes in academic analytics, prompting additional projects and new strategies. Significant challenges remain before the predictive nature of academic analytics meets its full potential. Academic analytics helps address the public’s desire for institutional accountability with regard to student success, given the widespread concern over the cost of higher education and the difficult economic and budgetary conditions prevailing worldwide.

Purdue University’s Signals project applies the principles of analytics widely used in business intelligence circles to the problem of improving student success within a course and, hence, improving the institution’s retention and graduation rates over time.

The Experience API (xAPI): A GPS for Learning by Michael Hruska

We need to keep finding ways to work together to bring the GPS for learning into the world.” Learning has changed. Today, our interconnected lives are filled with technologies and new ways of connecting to information and one another. This shift, created by mobile and social along with nearly ubiquitous connectivity, has evolved the world as we know it—and, more importantly, it has given birth to new capabilities for the learning ecosystem. Today’s learning ecosystem is rapidly growing, extremely complex, and overflowing with potential data. Yet, while this is possible, learning the right thing at the right time is the real challenge.
