Online Community Analytics
Student social networks such as discussion forums have rapidly become critical components of the learning process. Educators have grown to rely heavily on these tools to generate the peer-to-peer interactions necessary to promote a sense of community in a virtual learning environment.
From an academic perspective, data generated by these tools provide an unprecedented opportunity for organizations to correlate changes in student learning behaviour with their social networking capabilities.
AlmaLOGIC Online Community Analytics module uses visual tools to help organizations identify differences in social networking behaviour between high and low academic performers, and understand the impact of teacher involvement levels in social networks on students’ overall performance.
