Meet AFEL @ LearnTec




We are happy to announce that the AFEL project will have a booth at the upcoming LearnTec, from 30. January to 1st of February
Meet our AFEL experts and discuss with them, how learning analytics can improve your everyday learning.

Join the LearnTec and meet us in Halle 2, I46 (see the picture below)

LILE2018 Workshop at ACM WebSci2018



AFEL is organizing the LILE2018 Workshop at the 10th ACM Conference on Web Science.


About AFEL

The goal of AFEL (Analytics for Everyday Learning) is to develop methods and tools to understand informal/collective learning as it surfaces implicitly in online social environments. While Learning Analytics and Educational Data Mining traditionally rely on data from formal learning environments, studies have for a long time demonstrated that learning activities happen for a large part online, in a variety of other platforms. The aim of AFEL is therefore to devise the tools for exploiting learning analytics on such learning activities, in relation to cognitive models of learning and collaboration that are necessary to the understanding of loosely defined learning processes in online social environments.

To achieve this, AFEL gathers a range of skills in a consortium funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme including experts in data analytics, interaction with data, cognitive models of learning and collaboration, as well as the developers of online social platforms. Concretely, the objectives of this consortium are to 1) develop the tools necessary to capture information about learning activities from online social environments; 2) create methods for the analysis of such informal learning data, based on combining visual analytics with cognitive models of learning and collaboration; and 3) demonstrate the potential of the approach in improving the understanding of informal learning, and the way it can be better supported.
