Discovery and temporal analysis of MOOC study patterns

Mina Shirvani Boroujeni, Pierre Dillenbourg
2019 Journal of Learning Analytics  
Experiments with synthetic data show that our proposed method can accurately detect latent study patterns and track changes in learning behaviours.  ...  We demonstrate the application of both methods on a MOOC dataset and study the temporal dynamics of learners' behaviour in this context.  ...  To employ the described data-driven approach to model study patterns in MOOC, we choose daily granularity of actions.  ...
