EC-TEL 2017

I am on this year's programme committee for the European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning (EC-TEL 2017), which is taking place 12 - 15 September 2017 in Tallinn, Estonia.

New article on Learning Analytics

A new paper that I produced together with colleagues from the University of Mauritius has been published. The full text is open access and can be found here.

SHEILA project

I just joined the SHEILA project network as an Associate Partner. SHEILA stands for "Supporting Higher Education to Integrate Learning Analytics". It's goal is to aid policy making in HEIs at management level to reap benefits from Learning Analytics. A policy framework covering codes of practices, privacy and ethics, as well as quality assurance will be the core outcome. This is very interesting for me as I aim to implement LA in my university.

Multimodal Data for Learning

I am on the review board for this special call for papers on "Multimodal Data for Learning" for the Journal of Computer Assisted Learning (JCAL). The special issue deals with new data sources coming from the Internet of Things (IoT), wearables, eye-trackers and other camera systems, self-programmable microcomputers such as Raspberry Pi and Arduino. How can these multimodal datasets that combine traditional learning data with different data from physical activity, physiological responses or contextual information be exploited for learning?

ICEduTech 2017

I have once again joined the IADIS ICEduTech Programme Committee for the fifth time running. The conference will be held in Balikpapan, Indonesia, on November 23-24, 2017. You can find the conference website here.
