Because the analysis needed to develop Moodle learning analytics requires the
collection of detailed data from many institutions, extensive measures
are in place to ensure the privacy and anonymity of participants. Those measures are described in detail here.
Check to see if you meet the Data Set Donor criteria:
See if your Moodle site meets these criteria:
Your site is running Moodle 2.7 or later with no major core modifications
You are using MySQL, MariaDB, or Postgres (contact us for exceptions)
You can make a full copy of your site
You can install the Anonymise Local Plugin from GitHub
You can run commands from the CLI (Command Line Interface) on your Moodle server
Important: The de-identification process must be run on a copy of your Moodle site, because the Anonymise plugin destroys data. Follow these directions from the Moodle documentation, or contact your Moodle Partner for additional assistance.
If your institution uses the course final grade to represent successful completion of the course, is the final course grade in Moodle accurate? If not, please use this tool (when it becomes available) to import accurate final grades via a csv file into the copy of your Moodle site.
Follow these instructions to anonymise and extract your site data and upload a compressed file to the Moodle file server.
Note: These instructions assume that you are able to access the command
line interface (CLI) of the Moodle server where your site copy is
hosted. For more assistance, please contact your Moodle Partner. You may
also post questions in the forum in this section.
Once you have uploaded your data to the Moodle file server, please complete this survey. This information is necessary to evaluate your institutional data correctly for inclusion in Moodle learning analytics development.
Note: You may also complete this survey if you are not able to provide data for Moodle learning analytics development, to give us a better understanding of your institution's goals and needs.
When you are ready to upload your model data, please complete this survey. This information is necessary to evaluate your institutional data correctly for inclusion in Moodle learning analytics development.
