Learning Analytics for the Social Media Age #pLASMA

Interesting project, based at Dalhousie University and teh University of British Columbia, funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) which has been going a little while (it runs 2013-2018) but I don't think I've blogged. "This major five-year research initiative is designed to address the question “How do social media networks influence educational models?” The project involves developing novel learning analytics for the social media age." Principal Investigator is Anatoliy Gruzd. There is information (including e.g. a report on a conference session and discussions about MOOCs) at http://socialmedialab.ca/?cat=337 and an extended abstract of a poster at: http://www.cais-acsi.ca/ojs/index.php/cais/article/view/917
