At the Germany 2018 Moodle Moot, we put together a quick "DevCamp" around Learning Analytics that was very popular. We were able to create a functional plugin implementing a new learning analytics model in just a few hours! I've been asked when we will offer another opportunity like this. It isn't easy to get people together face to face, however. Instead, I've been putting together notes and ideas from the DevCamp and we will soon have a one-month Moodle Learning Analytics MOOC!
Whether you are a Moodle developer or not, this MOOC is for you! There are two branches through the MOOC: one that focuses on developing a new plugin using the Moodle Learning Analytics API, and one that focuses on writing clear use cases that address important educational issues. We hope there will be many educational research-development partnerships as a result of this MOOC.
If you are interested in participating in an early alpha trial of the Moodle Learning Analytics MOOC, please send me a message here at Moodle.org and I will arrange access.
Thank you all for your support!
