Abstract

In this paper we describe the use of learning analytics to provide indicators of students’ behaviour in technology-enhanced learning environments. We first provide an overview of the emerging field of learning analytics, and then describe a learning-analytic tool which reports student use of the Lectopia lecture capture system across the weeks of a semester, both collectively and individually. Observation of the data provided by the system enabled us to develop a set of proto-theoretical categories of behaviour, with associated algorithms to numerically identify these categories. Finally, we describe the use of the learning-analytic tool in a mixed methods approach to investigate in depth how students, with different characteristics, engage with and learn from technology-enhanced learning environments.
