Learning Analytics Dashboard

The goal of this project is to design, implement, and evaluate a Learning Analytics (LA) Dashboard for Temporary Social Media Application based on the SpeakUP app. SpeakUp is a temporary social media aimed at improving classroom interaction trough anonymous messaging. With SpeakUp, a temporary chat room can be created that users can join anonymously and where they can post and rate messages. Currently SpeakUp is developed for Android, iOS, and the web (speakup.info). Depending on the requirement of the project (semester project vs master project) the workload will be adapted

Design

The LA Dashboard will allow teachers and students to reflect on the interaction that occurred during a lecture by visualising different aspects, such as the number of users, the number of interactions, the concepts discussed, etc. Teachers and students should be involved in the design process to take their needs into account.

Implementation

The LA Dashboard should be implemented as a web application as it is intended to be viewed mainly from a desktop browser.

Evaluation

The LA Dashboard should be evaluated with teachers and students using interviews and surveys to investigate usability and usefulness for the learning process. The research questions are open.
