ANALYSE: A learning analytics extension for Open edX

Pedro Jose Munoz Merino

This talk aims at presenting ANALYSE, a learning analytics tool developed for Open edX at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. We will present the defined and implemented higher level indicators as transformation of low level data in ANALYSE as well as the correspondent visualizations. In addition, we will present ways of how to use ANALYSE by teachers and students in order to improve the learning process. You can find a video demo of ANALYSE on YouTube.

Digging through the data – MoocCzar

Andrew Dekker and John Zornig

This talk discusses the research data package that edX provides to partners, and how this data can be explored to learn more about the students taking our courses. To assist in this, we have developed a platform – MoocCzar, an open source project which helps edX teams uncover and disseminate data gathered from edX courses. The talk discusses the development and future of MoocCzar, and how this learning data can help influence future course design and development.

Analytics from edX


EdX will present the current state and future roadmap of Insights. We will also highlight how the open community has contributed to its success and how you can too.

Real Time Analytics Using ELK

Felipe Montoya

This talk presents an application of the opensource ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) to deliver actionable insights in real time from edX tracking log records.

Open edX实施中的课程

Leveraging Open Edx for Corporate Training

Cathy Herbert

Today’s corporate learner needs access to ondemand training delivered in easily consumable chunks – anytime, anywhere. They also need a forum to “talk to the instructor.” Open Edx provides the perfect platform for a blended training model which gives users what they need and better utilizes your training resources. (often product managers, or functional leaders). Targeted Sales Training for internal employees and partners – while traditional testing methods are effective, Edx gives us the ability to run “Best in Class” sales competitions (based on videos submitted by the employee/partner). This is huge – the system gives us the ability to have Sales professionals practice their pitch and get direct feedback from their manager and team members.

Deploying SPOCs in a University Institution with Open edX: What Do We Need?

Jose A. Ruiperez-Valiente

The presentation try to describe the experience of creating and exploiting of SPOCs at UC3M for use to supplement classroom training (flipping classroom) using the Open edX platform. In the presentation we will try various aspects like customizing the platform to adapt to our environment (for example LDAP support) and additional software tools which we have had to be developed to facilitate the whole process management and content creation, which takes associated with the creation of a MOOCs / SPOCs. In addition we have developed several XBlocks to include new features to our courses. We finally will treat aspects that an organization has to take into account to successfully approach these projects.

Building Successful Open edX Instructors from Non-Faculty Domain Experts

Julie Mullen, Lauren Edwards, and Vijay Gadepally

Traditionally, the knowledge held by professional engineers, scientists and researchers has only been accessible to a small number of co-workers. The open edX platform enables MIT Lincoln Laboratory to share the knowledge of world-class domain experts through technical education courses highlighting theory and its use in practice. Building successful online courses requires that technical professionals, with limited teaching experience, develop a teaching mindset. In this presentation we discuss the approaches used to help non-faculty instructors gain an awareness of the open edX andragogy and the path followed to transition from presenter to educational guide.

Navigating Barriers to Implementation of an International Medical Training Course in Developing Nations

Nicholus Warstadt, Silvia Vaca, and Feroze Naina

Clubfoot is a congenital birth deformity easily and effectively treatable by the low-resource requiring and non-surgical Ponseti method, but knowledge of this technique has yet to disseminate to rural hospitals and clinics in developing countries. Current training practices are dominated by non-profit organizations investing extensive time, resources, and man-power to host centralized, annual trainings. Here, we describe our experience in working with these same non-profit organizations to develop and implement a standardized digital training through the Open edX platform, including barriers of technology, multi-instance administration, and the need for content customization.

Online Geospatial Education in Africa through the Open edX Platform: Possibilities and Limitations

Thomas Ballatore

Here, we discuss the particular challenges of translating a set of successful onsite geospatial training courses into a set of Open edX online courses for learners in Africa. We present work done in 14 countries (Algeria, Burundi, Chad, Cote d’Ivoire, DR Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Morocco, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zimbabwe) about user experience with current edX courses as well as experience and lessons for planned Open edX courses on geospatial topics.

课程创作和扩展Open edX平台

MIT Learning Object Repository for Education

Ferdi Alimadhi

We will discuss our new project for managing courseware content across courses, disciplines and runs via our LORE project ( LORE allows you to import Open edX courses and be paired with meta data from analytics such as the average grade, or number of attempts. From there you can use it to find, categorize, and mix and match problems or whole sections of different courses to share and re-use existing content in new ways.

Semantic Tagging Using Asides in Studio

Cole Shaw and Ross Strader

In this talk, we will discuss one of the first implementations of XBlock Asides, which we use to semantically tag problems in edX courses. Both MIT and the Open Learning Initiative at Stanford will present on their respective use cases and show how Asides can enhance the student and instructor experiences.

Open edX and Adaptive Learning

Ed Daciuk

Adaptive learning. You’ve heard the hype; now learn how to deliver on its promise and potential. Focussing on the intersection of Open edX and adaptive learning technology, this discussion will delve into recent developments that allows the Open edX platform to provide adaptive learning pathways to users. We will discuss the emerging landscape of adaptive technology, illustrate the use cases for integrating adaptive learning into the Open edX platform, and show how a major international corporation is integrating third party solutions with Open edX to develop cutting edge, scalable courses with personalized learning pathways for traditionally static areas like corporate training and regulatory compliance.
