Description

Special Session on
Analytics in Educational Environments
- A2E 2018

15 - 17 March, 2018 - Funchal, Madeira, Portugal

Within the 10th International Conference on Computer Supported Education - CSEDU 2018


SCOPE

Analytics is a topic of growing interest in the research communities. INFORMS defined analytics as the scientific process of transforming data into insights with the purpose of making better decisions. Being grounded on the area of decision support systems, the area of analytics has got a vast range of applications. One important application concerns educational environments, where the three types of analytics, namely, descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive are being applied.
We can say that one of the main applications is related to assessment, in order to improve its quality. The use of LMS where the activity of the students’ can be easily accessed, potentiated the use of analytics to understand their route during the learning process, thus they can be helped to improve during that process. Also, the use of analytics from the school’s managers, can help them to take better decisions.



TOPICS

Authors are welcome to submit papers, discuss theory or research issues, demonstrate tools:
  • Analytics in e-assessment applications
  • Analytics in e-learning environments
  • Decision support systems in learning environments
  • Data mining, text mining, web mining
  • Educational analytics
  • Others considered relevant to this area

SCOPE

CSEDU 2018, the International Conference on Computer Supported Education, aims at becoming a yearly meeting place for presenting and discussing new educational environments, best practices and case studies on innovative technology-based learning strategies, institutional policies on computer supported education including open and distance education, using computers. In particular, the Web is currently a preferred medium for distance learning and the learning practice in this context is usually referred to as e-learning. CSEDU 2018 is expected to give an overview of the state of the art as well as upcoming trends, and to promote discussion about the pedagogical potential of new learning and educational technologies in the academic and corporate world.

CSEDU seeks papers reporting research work, academic or business case-studies, on topics indicated below in the section “Conference Areas”. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Both technological and social-oriented papers are accepted. All papers must describe original work, not previously published or submitted to another conference. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings of CSEDU under an ISBN, and will be indexed by major indexes. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full research reports (regular papers) and work-in-progress reports (position papers) are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as tutorials dedicated to technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial, workshop or special session are invited to contact the conference secretariat or visit the conference website.
