Title: Designing Learning analytics dashboards: lessons learned
In this talk, I will present our work on learning analytics dashboards that aim to support students, teachers and study advisors. These dashboards visualise traces of learning activities, in order to promote awareness, reflection and sense-making. In recent years, we also increasingly employ machine learning models to make predictions and personalise content delivery in such dashboards, and we focus particularly on how to explain such models to end-users. In this talk, I will present lessons learned from the user-centred design and evaluation of these dashboards and explanations to support blended learning, group work, and communication between students and study advisors, as well as future research challenges.
