AFEL at LAIR2017 Chile – Expanding horizons

Tags: , , , , ,

Eduardo Veas and Analía Cicchinelli, from AFEL partner Know-Center, were invited to talk on the topic of Analytics Tools for Knowledge Activities at the LAIR2017 conference in Chile.

The talk introduced the tools built at Know-Center for assessment of quality in document repositories and their application to content creation.

From knowledge exploration and content creation, the talk diverged to self-regulation, touching on tools for self-regulation in informal (everyday) learning, introducing the topic of AFEL: Learners dashboard, learning graph, learning paths and more.


Both of them had an intense discussion with lead researchers in the field, such as:

Prof. Mar Pérez Sanagustín, Head of the Technology for Digital Learning Lab @ Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile

Prof. Carlos Alario Hoyos, Technology Enhanced Learning group at Carlos III University, Madrid

Prof. Denis Parra, Head of the Social Computing and Visualization Group @ Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile
