understand. Thank you for sharing your work, I like it a lot.
-It seems I put the cart before the horse ...The central point of my idea was to track student activity in terms of the features within the PLE that lead to personalisation. So, although the agenda is personal to the student, thought it might be an idea to identify specifics within those groups. Reason being I know of other types of PLE envs such as Pebble Pad and what not, but I don't know about any R&D that shows how effective they are for student progress/motivation to engage/outcomes and so on.
-Really exciting stuff surrounding the question engine-timely in response to a focus on those subjects you mentioned, I would say STEM for sure, in the UK context.
-Learning analytics...the project on that link was interesting to read, headed up by Siemens, know his work. A question that remains for me however is how can students engage with LA for reflective activity, in other words, how can they have easy access, and initiate action for progress?
-Laurillard, yes, love the TLRP work and smiled at the other related papers/slides, as the work links nicely with a recent research paper we have submitted about dialogue, T&L in the Moodle MOOC, September last. Theoretically Diane's work appears to fit well with what you are aiming to do.
-Be happy to help out in someway in the future, if helpful for you, although I hear you about teaching loads-can get in the way ( I have a form to complete to join ALT-must do that!).
