Overview

This MOOC aims to support the development of the basic competences for Educational Data Analytics of Online and Blended teaching and learning.

It targets:

  • instructional designers and e-tutors of online and blended courses, as well as,
  • school teachers of blended learning courses (using the flipped classroom model).

It combines

  • theoretical knowledge on core issues related to collecting, analysing, interpreting and using educational data, including ethics and privacy, with
  • practical experience of applying educational data analytics in three different e-learning platforms, namely, Moodle, the eXact Suite and the IMC Learning Suite.

The MOOC is developed by an international Academia-Industry consortium within the action Learn2Analyze — An Academia-Industry Knowledge Alliance for enhancing Online Training Professionals’ (Instructional Designers and e-Trainers) Competences in Educational Data Analytics which is co-funded by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union (Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices – Knowledge Alliances, Agreement n. 2017-2733 / 001-001, Project No 588067-EPP-1-2017-1-EL-EPPKA2-KA).
