Announcing the Apereo Analytics Initiative

Feb. 13, 2014 - PRLog -- The Apereo Foundation is pleased to announce the Apereo Learning analytics initiative. The aims of the initiative are to accelerate the operationalization of Learning Analytics software and frameworks, support the validation of analytics pilots across institutions, and working together so as to avoid duplication.

The initiative is supported by Marist College a founding partner of the Society of Learning Analytics Research (SoLAR), and the Focus Group Learning Analytics at the University of Amsterdam.

Within the Apereo community Marist College has released the Open Academic Analytics initiative (OAAI), a proven open-source academic early alert system - https://confluence.sakaiproject.org/x/8aWCB . The University of Amsterdam has sponsored a protocol update for Sakai CLE and Apereo OAE’s which enables the applications to store student activity in a secure repository called a Learning Record Store - https://confluence.sakaiproject.org/display/TINCAN/Home . This feature simplifies cross validation of Learning Analytics projects. The University of Amsterdam is also planning to build a community sourced Learning Record Store that should be seen as an integral part of a maturing OAAI framework.

If you are interested in working towards a community sourced analytics infrastructure, incubating software, sharing requirements, cross validating analytics pilots, while working in a wider community of interest then please contact Alan Berg, Community Officer for the Apereo Learning Analytics Initiative (contact details below.)

A mailing list to support discussion of analytics across Apereo projects has been established -analytics@apereo.org. You can subscribe by sending a message to analytics+subscribe@apereo.org

Apereo is an open source non-profit which seeks to stimulate and sustain software to support the academic mission.
