Learning Analytics Courses

After about a year of planning, we can finally announce the following courses on edX focusing on learning analytics. The intent of these courses is to eventually lead into a MicroMasters and then advance placement in an in-development Masters of Science in Learning Analytics at UTA. Each course runs about three weeks and we’ve tried to settle on prominent analytics tools for educational data so the experience is one where skills can immediately be applied.

We’ve structured these courses to provide an intro to analytics in education (a good compliment to the courses is our recently released Handbook of Learning Analytics – free download):

  • Learning Analytics Fundamentals
  • Social Network Analysis
  • Cluster Analysis
  • Predictive Modeling in Learning Analytics
  • Feature Engineering for Improving Learning Environments
  • Connecting Learning Data to Improve Instructional Design
  • Natural Language Processing and Natural Language Understanding in Educational Research
  • Knowledge Inference and Structure Discovery for Education
  • Multi-modal Learning Analytics
  • We have exceptional instructors – world leaders in the field. We are, however, well aware of the gender imbalance. We had five faculty (women) who ended up dropping out due to existing commitments. If you’d like to help right this imbalance, email me and let me know courses or topics that you’d like to instruct in the LA domain.

    2. Hi,
      I am wondering about the cost. If you also use discourse analyse in this field?
      I did my Masters in Learning and Technology with Royal Roads with a paper that did a lit review of discourse patterns in online communities.i currently teach online Secondary Humanities.
      Cheers,
      Bonnie

      Thanks .
