Stereotype Modeling for Problem-Solving Performance Predictions in MOOCs and Traditional Courses

Roya Hosseini, Peter Brusilovsky, Michael Yudelson, Arto Hellas
2017 Proceedings of the 25th Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization - UMAP '17  
In this paper, we are exploring the application of stereotype-based modeling to a more challenging task -predicting student problemsolving and learning in two programming courses and two MOOCs.  ...  Recent research in MOOC context demonstrated that data-driven learner stereotypes could work well for detecting and preventing student dropouts.  ...  If useful stereotype-level models are found, then it is possible to use stereotypes for problem-level personalization; i.e., to predict problem-solving performance independently for each stereotype and  ...

Adopting MOOCs for Quality Engineering Education in India [chapter]

Deepak B. Phatak
2014 Proceedings of the International Conference on Transformations in Engineering Education  
They will conduct group discussions and problem solving sessions rather than mere lecturing; and locally give and evaluate assignments of which the marks will be factored in the final grade.  ...  Conduct of practical sessions in laboratories is an important aspect of engineering education, for which MOOCs offer no alternative. We propose a blended MOOCs model for adoption in India.  ...  We have analysed the present MOOCs in this context, and have proposed a blended model for engineering education in India.  ...

Motivation as a Lens to Understand Online Learners

René F. Kizilcec, Emily Schneider
2015 ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction  
Although motivations varied across courses, we found that each motivation predicted key behavioral outcomes for learners (N = 71, 475 across 14 courses).  ...  Motivations thus provide a lens for understanding online learners and designing online courses to better support their needs. ACM Reference Format: René F. Kizilcec and Emily Schneider. 2015.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank Jeremy Bailenson, Candace Thille, and our three anonymous reviewers for their helpful comments.  ...
