Leveraging Student-Generated Data to Inform Web-Based Course Design

Wednesday, March 29 | 9:15AM–10:05AM | Room 550
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Standard Presentation
In this session, we will explore effective practices for leveraging student-generated data in a learning management system (Canvas) to inform web-based course design. We will demonstrate self-service tools that we built for harvesting, analyzing, and visualizing discussion interactions and content access. This will be followed by discussions about using the results to modify course site designs to facilitate greater engagement and participation.

Outcomes: Identify the data that can be harvested from your LMS * Apply techniques to gather, analyze, and visualize data * Employ instructional design techniques for applying lessons learned from data
