Data Science for Online Education, Summer 2017

More and more material is available for learning online, e.g. on Massive Open Online Course platforms. 

While online students learn their activities can be tracked and later used for research or even cycled through machine learning models to help guide instruction to improve their learning. ALFA is conducting Data Science and Machine Learning on such activity data. Join us in developing new technology to help learners learn better and instructors teach better. We are working on feature engineering, predictive modeling and transfer learning. We plan to dive into an "Intro to Java" course to motivate our efforts.
