Learning objectives and contents

The course will introduce basic design patterns for building personalised software and learning support system by introducing principles of adaptive learning and assessment, statistical and computational approaches for user modelling and user data analysis as also design of feedback for different target groups.

- The students are know the principles of adaptive educational systems

- The student know the basic principles of human learning

- The student know different approaches for user modelling and tracking user activity

- The student are able to integrate different information sources for learner behaviour from online tracking to sensor-based data in learning dashboards and learning analytics

- The student know about different forms of feedback for learners and their effects in learning support


Assessment (Grade 0-5):

The assessment is based on the individual assignments (50%) and group project and presentation (50%).
