Soomo Learning Focus Group

Concurrent Session 5

Brief Abstract

We, at Soomo Learning, love attending OLC conferences because they provide an unmatched opportunity to speak with partners who are eager to undertake the changes required to see significant gains in outcomes.  At this year's meeting in Orlando, we are inviting you, along with a select group of your peers, to a dialog-based focus group to give feedback on a new analytics dashboard.

Interactive courseware enables students to actively engage with digital instruction in ways that create detailed activity analytics.  One use of these analytics is to provide faculty with clear, time-saving guidance on which students most need to hear from their instructor or advisor.  However, little research has been done to date on how to represent activity data in ways that instructors find easy to understand and compelling to act upon.  We are seeking your opinion on tools to reach out to students to nudge them back on track and intervene with at-risk students.

***This focus group is invitation only***
