Technology-Enhanced Learning Analytics System Design for Engineering Education

  title={Technology-Enhanced Learning Analytics System Design for Engineering Education},
  author={Kushal Abhyankar and Subhashini Ganapathy},
  journal={International Journal of Information and Education Technology},
The field of technologically enhanced learning (TEL) allows for the visualization of different patterns of user behaviors. These trends represent the usages of the technology based educational content. The visualization of this information leads to the formation of a comprehensive analytics system to process the metadata. The efforts to the formation of this learning analytics system were initiated with a comprehensive ethnographic research conducted over the engineering students of Wright…

Learners in the Data Mist: Visualizations for Optimization of Learning Environments

This master thesis presents an Learning Analytics artifact designed to support learning environment optimization that had promising potential, but would be better evaluated through testing over several course runs and with the consumption of multiple data-sets.

The use of tools of data mining to decision making in engineering education—A systematic mapping study

The study described in this article provides researchers with an overview of the progress made to date and identifies areas in which research is missing, and shows a trend toward case study research that is mainly directed at software and computer science engineering.

Unleashing the Power of Data Analytics to Examine Engineering Students’ Experiences and Outcomes

In this theory paper, we integrate literature from different fields. We argue that efforts to expand engineering education research through data analytics need to be grounded in the established

The Role of Learning Analytics in Global Higher Education

The chapter argues that applying learning analytics has the potential to improve educational performance and reach strategic goals in the information age.

The lived experiences of ICT and Engineering Faculty teaching in higher education institutions in Ireland and the United Kingdom, who adopt and implement mobile technology enhanced learning initiatives : a phenomenological investigation

Towards visual analytics for teachers' dynamic diagnostic pedagogical decision-making

A new method called "Teaching Analytics" is introduced and a triadic model of teaching analytics (TMTA) is explored, which adapts and extends the Pair Analytics method in visual analytics which was inspired by the pair programming model of the extreme programming paradigm.

Model Based Technology Integration in Engineering Education with Deep Dive Ethnographic Research

An ethnographic research based approach to create a solid foundation of the user research and as a future research develop a systematic model to predict the user intention to use the technology in the field of education.

Ethnographic Research Based Education Model Development

—Due to the decreasing number of engineering graduates,  there is a strong need for the betterment of the education customs. A model-based education approach is extremely useful application with an

Learning and Teaching Styles in Engineering Education.

When Linda Silverman and I wrote this paper in 1987, our goal was to offer some insights about teaching and learning based on Dr. Silverman’s expertise in educational psychology and my experience in

Investigating the determinants and age and gender differences in the acceptance of mobile learning

The results indicate that performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, perceived playfulness, and self-management of learning were all significant determinants of behavioural intention to use m-learning.

Navigating the Bumpy Road to Student-Centered Instruction

In the traditional approach to higher education, the burden of communicating course material resides primarily with the instructor. In student-centered instruction (SCI), some of this burden is
