What's New

Full Schedule

The Developmental and Psychological Sciences (DAPS) second-year doctoral students present their ongoing research results. We are going to support our fellow Lyticists and learning researchers!

Jamie Johnston. Jamie will be talking about a new initiative started in the School of Medicine and recently incorporated into VPTL – the Stanford “Digital Medical Educational International Collaborative” or “Digital MEdIC” for short (  The initiative ultimately aims to make high quality medical education content available to learners worldwide and particularly in low-resource areas where healthcare provision is lacking. Right now, the initiative is still in the early stages of developing and aggregating content. As part of this, the team not only wants to create a library of content but to iterate and learn about ways of making digital learning more effective. They will begin piloting courses in India and South Africa in early 2018, and Jamie would like to get feedback on a study she is designing with a couple medical students that tests the effectiveness of incorporating strategic reinforcement questions and question-style (i.e. Socratic style) lecturing into an asynchronous online anatomy course.

Charis Charitsis. Charis will be presenting about his work on designing technology to help collect data about learners on a multitude of well as an application he has been working on for a while that he wants to unveil to Lytics! (Even I haven't seen it, so excitement is high.)

Petr Johanes will present a research update on his work to create digital learning environments that map environmental features and learner actions onto multiple theories at different levels of analysis simultaneously to provide a more complex view of human learning. Specifically, Petr will present the philosophical framework he is brigning to bear to make this happen and how that framework plays out in terms of learning analytics that a system of this kind might require.

During our session today, we will spend most of our time discussing the questions of this kind: What role do you want Lytics to play in your (research) life? How can we structure Lytics to support you in your (research) endeavors?

Glenn Davis. Glenn will be talking about a project he is starting up with Andreas Paepcke and two students from CS and Education. They are looking at edX discussion forum data and trying to come up with a method to reduce redundancy in instructor-forum interactions by automatically identifying good answers to questions and grouping together similar questions. 

Kathy MirzaeiKathy will be talking about the Center for Advanced Research through Online Learning (CAROL) , whichfacilitates research using data collected from online courses offered through OpenEdx, Coursera, and NovoEd platforms. Data collected includes but not limited to; learners manipulating controls on video players, submission of solutions to problems, posts on message boards, and some demographic data. All data that CAROL shares is stored on a machine called DATASTAGE. Join us for a brief introduction to different types of data available on Datastage and the request process.
