Reprise: not quite dropped out of the course… #LAK12
David Jennings, Quickened with the Firewater, Feb 28, 2012
I don’t suppose anyone is actually ‘following’ this blog in an active sense (only two visits to the site in the last week!), but if they had been, they might be forgiven for  thinking that dropped out of the Learning Analytics course. There have been a couple of moments when I wondered that myself. However, I [...] Tue, 28 Feb 2012 17:43:37 +0000 [Comment]

Our attention data and APML: going nowhere fast? #LAK12
David Jennings, Quickened with the Firewater, Feb 28, 2012
Thanks to Erik Duval for pointing us last week to the Atttention Trust, from which I found myself (via a route I can no longer find!) rediscovering Attention Profiling Markup Language (APML). Ever since I first heard of it, I loved the idea of APML, which I understand as basically giving us a standard format [...] Tue, 28 Feb 2012 22:25:02 +0000 [Comment]

So maybe I should keep away from the blog for fear of digging [...] Tue, 31 Jan 2012 23:39:48 +0000 [Comment]

Staggered by the story that “In India, IBM is working with faculty members from 500 universities to help more than 30,000 students develop skills in predictive analytics” conjured an image of massive call-centre-style locations with people hunched over terminals monitoring the micro-behaviour of other people on the opposite side of the planet. It feels remote, [...] Fri, 27 Jan 2012 19:56:41 +0000 [Comment]

My interest in learning analytics #LAK12
davidjennings, Quickened with the Firewater, Jan 24, 2012
This blog has been in hibernation since I got about two thirds of the way through the CCK11 course last year. It’s the natural place for me to pick things up again on the Learning Analytics course, though. My interest in the course stems from two sources. First, I’m online educator and have been since [...] Tue, 24 Jan 2012 22:50:04 +0000 [Comment]
