k2 An interview with Mike Sharples – December 2013

Topic: Global Research and Outlook of Mobile Learning

Interviewer: Can you please introduce the key research achievements in m-learning?

Prof.: Ok. Well, I think the first major achievement is to demonstrate that mobile devices can effectively and successfully enable effective learning both inside and outside the classroom –that people can use mobile devices to access information and also to learn socially with other people. That’s a first achievement of m-learning. The second main achievement has been to reconceive learning–not just as a static activity that happens in one location, but an activity that occurs across multiple locations and it’s contextualized.

An interview with George Siemens – May 2013

Topic: Understanding the individual students better with Learning Analytics

Interviewer: What is learning analytics? And why learning analytics emerged? And where learning analytics is being used?

Prof.: A quick definition the way that we’ve described through the Society for Learning Analytics Research is that learning analytics is essentially the process where we measure, we collect data that is actively generated through the students’ participation in a particular learning activity. In that process of collecting data, we can gain insight into what students are doing, how they are developing, what sort of their next stage of activity might be. It’s essentially the measurement collection of this data that students are generating. Then we use that to report back both the learner and the institution and the educator as well – we report back to at least those three agents. And our goal is really to understand better how is learning happening and how can we improve the learning experience or the environment in which learning occurs. So, that’s our definition. If you want something a little bit shorter, basically it’s analyzing and communicating the patterns in the data trails that students generate as they learn.

k An interview with Kinshuk – January 2012

Topic: Transition from e-learning to u-learning

Interviewer: Your report is titled “Transition from e-learning to u-learning: innovations and personalization issues”What is U-learning? And what are the differences between e-learning and u-learning?

Prof.:E-learning is something that nowadays almost every university is doing, which is basically about accessing content and providing certain interaction through internet. E-learning is something that does not have any requirement for knowing what student is doing and also has nothing to do with student’s current situation. E-learning means that every student accesses the same content regardless of where they are, when and what they are accessing and so on.
