Knowledge, Learning, Community

This excellent report (55 page PDF) will introduce you to the Connected Learning Analytics (CLA) toolkit. This toolkit extends learning analytics beyond the LMS, and specifically, to a set of six social media platforms (Twitter, Facebook, Wordpress, GitHub, Trello, Slack). It is based on Kitto's work from 2018 developing the Connected Learning (CL) Recipe, released as open source on GitHub. The data is saved in a learning record store (LRS) using xAPI. It is converted yet again using a GraphQL schema to a form of spreadsheet that can be ingested by OnTask, a tool that helps provide personalized and actionable feedback to students. The report is written really clearly and will be accessible to almost everyone. A fine piece of work.
