Coach2 project investigated usability and effectiveness of Learning Analytics in a group of Bachelor courses in the area of Computer Science. An advanced architecture was developed and implemented, including a standalone Learning Record Store for data storage and easy access to miscellaneous data, Machine Learning techniques for determining relevant predictors, and a dashboard for informing learners. The overall approach was based on mirroring, the idea that learners see themselves operating in the context of their peers. The results were informative in terms of pro’s and con’s regarding the design and approach. The treatment showed tendencies, but finding statistical significant results turned out difficult. This paper reports on the Coach2 project.
