Comparing MOOCs and Blended Classes: Using data mining, psychometrics, and machine learning (60m)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

I’ll discuss data analysis from two MIT MOOCs: Circuits (6.002x) and Introductory Physics (8.MRev) on edX.org.  I’ll present results for:

Student behavior: Time spent on each resources by week (for different cohorts of user), how much of various resources are accessed, and how problem-solving strategies differ on tests and homework.  eText use depends on online course structure.

Student Learning: Before and After testing shows certificate earners learn a bit more than students in traditional classes, but less than those in interactive classes.  Will also compare performance of students in MOOC and blended oncampus class.

What Resources Correlate with Learning: Preliminary investigations of how time spent on various resources correlates with learning.
