such broad range ya gave there, in the 4 different links. and then re-focusing discussion questions...
realistic... Siemens et al, 2011 and Buckingham-Shum & Ferguson, 2012 and 69-Beattie.pdf i would say yes as an overall. with ability to say no, in more finer niddy griddy detail.
realistic.... presentation used is available online. more of a SHOCK and AWE.
who owns student data and who should have access to it? does it belong to the student or the instution that collects it?
i don't want to touch that, even if had unlimited funds for lawyers. with that said,.... it would be nice to have something like a GPL / open source license, of what your information can be accessed freely. and then what other information must be classified... username/passwords. = keep folks from changing your stuff exception for example *picking on forum moderators (waves to Michael de Raadt)*. but not state who can access it and do something with it.
i would think if i went into moodle and field out say facebook information in profile field, i would be implying the moodle site can get information from my facebook page and other information from facebook.
facebook is littered across many websites "sign on with facebook" and different website software ask for different information, and displays that information, before accepting the signin conditions. (this website will get your email address, billing address, shipping address, and also able to post to your facebook page, etc..). BUT facebook has some terms and conditions of how information can be used applied, and i think some additional options need to be noted, when filling out information on facebook, for "signin with facebook for your given website software" if user information may be used differently than what facebook terms and conditions are set to.
if student data was treated in such a way. example. myschool -> moodle, then student went to another school.. there moodle, i could click sign on with previous school. and get information that way? or perhaps send data from moodle to say facebook. and then from facebook, back to another school moodle installation.
with above... student owns the data, but institution has to deal with the data, collect it, use it, keep it for so long for records. in that part it implies both student and institution owns the information. but the institution... would have to hold to what ever "terms and conditions" that were applied at time of student accepting the terms and conditions. the institution would not simply be able to ok.. we are changing our terms and conditions so we can sell information... without student coming back to institution and saying hey ok i agree to new updated terms.
issue is... yet again... most websites and software out there... have some sort of "catch clause" we are able to update terms and conditions without warning and without notice, at any time we see fit ((inserts better lawyer speak)).... this gives options to software developers to add and change information so they can grow. but it also gives possible loop hole of institution suddenly changing terms and conditions so they could sell information. ((insert better lawyer speak examples)).
in the... Siemens et al, 2011 conference video, it speaks about mutli data warehouses... moodle is already setup for multi data warehouses... from repositoriy plugins say google drive, different activities / resources / courses via moodle.net to web conference software, to various chat software skype, irc, etc.., to various wide range of other plugins.
but moodle does not have the "facebook" signin like information? maybe some plugins? or it is simply implied through given yourwebsite -> moodle -> general terms and conditions?
backup and restore and publishing to moodle.net and keeping student data out of it... vs being able to give student data... i would imagine would apply to this thread.
while... www.yoursite.com/moodle *login as admin* -> site admin menu -> developer -> create test course, can create test courses and test students. it does not imply actual useful data of students going through a course.
data analytic, implies ability to look at other students that have went through a course and/or activity, and give suggestive other options to student via some computer AI errr education AI or academic AI. while a k-12 may have say 500 students... they only have say 50 students in grade 8. 50 students is not a whole lot of data to base some things on. and need for multi schools to combine there data sets. to get a better algorithm / equation... for better learning experience through moodle. example one school in 8th grade may only have one person that has this specific learning disability, but 10 other schools have zero, but another 30 schools have an average of 1.2 with same learning disability. if moodle software was able to say hey, this student has this learning disability.. lets say they are blind. lets give these optional activities / resources better suited to a blind person. if person is deaf, then these activities / resources. blind and deaf are easy... taking it further for more troubled students. and there different learning disabilities needing data sets to work from. **disabilities bad word not sure what else to use**
going back to top of this post... students GPL and information given out, vs stuff that needs to be withheld... and facebook signin via a given website or application... along with backup/restore of activities / resources / courses via moodle.net and giving information away...
would a simple "yes/no" checkbox be good enough for different types of information...of letting students and/or parents and/or institutions decide what data to give away freely while still anomalously identify a given student?
*situation grown out of control*
medical information in the United States. *arghs* scams upon scams, doctors selling information to drug companies and you would get a different call each hour from someone else trying to get you to do something buy something... and eventually it had to come down to government placing a law on things.
what things can be put into place to keep situations from getting out of control?
