This paper presents a case study from the Department of Informatics at the University of Rijeka where a blended course Programming 2 offers new supportive activities to students. The work(More)
In this paper, Educational Data Mining and Learning Analytics are used in order to find out what impacts Programming 1 success most, since increase in the passing rate has been detected. The research is conducted on the dataset compounded of two parts: the first part is extracted from the Learning Management System (LMS) Moodle logs, while the second part(More)
Fresh peaches and nectarines are very popular for their high nutritional and therapeutic value. Unfortunately, they are prone to rapid deterioration after harvest, especially if the cold chain is not well maintained. The objective of this work is to study the environmental fluctuation and the quality change of fresh peaches and nectarines in cold chain. The(More)
This paper is an attempt of applying EDM methods on Moodle data in order to detect specific behaviours within student groups with the tendency to fail the course. The research is conducted on Moodle logs gathered in the blended course Programming 1. Extracting and using crucial information on time can be a turning point for students in at-risk stage, which(More)
Learning management systems collect huge amounts of data that can later be analysed. The University of Rijeka uses MudRi e-learning system, which is based on the Moodle open source software. This paper focuses on the Programming course, for which data over several years are available. The data can be interpreted and valuable knowledge can be obtained and(More)
