LAK18 Hackathon at Learning Analytics and Knowledge conference (LAK18) in Sydney, Australia
The principal aim of Hack@LAK18 was to enable multi-disciplinary thinking over key open challenges in Learning Analytics based on a problem-oriented, pragmatic approach. OULAD was one of the recommended datasets by the organisers.
The workshop ran as part of the LAK 2016 conference. Over its 30 participants focused to discover how data literacy impacts learning analytics, both for practitioners and for end users. OULAD data was utilised for analysing and visualizing learner data in order to understand the outputs of learning analytics on the real examples.
