Sub-Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies, Learning Analytics, Platforms and Infrastructure

This sub-conference will focus on advances and emerging trends in digital infrastructure that support and facilitate learning. Examples include inventive uses of data as representations of teaching and learning activities which bring into scope learning analytics and its sub-processes of capturing, collecting, storing, analyzing, visualizing and using data to improve teaching & learning, as well as the processes that enable it, such as educational data mining, open educational resources, interoperability standards, and digital infrastructures. The conference aims to inform standards development in the area of systems, resource, and data interoperability and to report on and inspire design of new and advanced learning technologies.
