Time: 09:30 AM
Location: CIC Ideation Studio
This workshop brings together system architects from multiple universities interested in the future of the OnTask architecture, and the Learning Analytics API (LA-API) architecture. Both are open source projects from nationally funded OLT projects, with the LA-API expanding the range of data sources that learning analytics services (such as OnTask) can reason about.
Workshop leads: Prof. Abelardo Pardo (Univ. S. Australia; OnTask Project Lead) and Dr Kirsty Kitto (UTS:CIC; LA-API).
- OnTask is building momentum with several institutions looking to mainstream it, following successful pilots (homepage/article).
- LA-API has emerged from the OLT-funded Beyond the LMS project using xAPI and other technologies to aggregate learner data from diverse sources, and provide ways to interrogate it for learning analytics purposes (homepage/CLA Toolkit)
