Presentation on visualizing online discourse

D'Arcy Norman, May 17, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I totally agree with D'Arcy Norman's comments on timeline views of online course discussion metadata. And I liked the comments that came up in the dicussion after:

  • the coding-data analysis may not be necessary to learn much of what can be inferred through more automatable metadata analysis...
  • having better coding-data analysis tools may not be as awesome as it sounds, as there is the potential for having nasty feedback loops if the discussion analysis is available to participants during the discussion itself.

Slidesa and PDFs of Norman's presentation are available.
