The SHEILA project team ran a workshop on “Developing an evidence-based institutional learning analytics policy” at the 13th European Conference on Technology Enhanced Learning on 3 September at the University of Leeds.
The emergence of learning analytics afforded for the analysis of digital traces of user interaction with technology. This analysis offers many opportunities to advance understanding and enhance learning and the environments in which learning occurs.
This slidedeck introduces the core concepts of microlearning as a learning experience design approach for seamless learning. It particularly covers the fundamental underpinning of Minimal Independent Feedback Loops and how the microlearning activities are integrated into and orchestrated in more complex learning experiences using xAPI and learning analytics.
Practical skills training, co-located group interactions, and tasks alternative to the classic desktop-based learning scenario represent still a big set of learning activities taking place in the classroom and at the workplace.
While the L&D community is increasingly familiar with the Experience API (xAPI) and its value for data collection and interoperability, few examples exist to clarify the value of xAPI as applied within different existing learning infrastructures.
