LDSHE is developed under an Hong Kong Government funded project (ITF/306/15FP), titled “An Open Learning Design, Data Analytics and Visualization Framework for e-Learning”. This is a joint institutional project led by researchers from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST, lead institution), The University of Hong Kong (HKU) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The aim of the joint project is to serve MOOC users (instructors, instructional designers, institutional curriculum leaders and learning scientists) by developing an open framework that integrates three major e-learning technology components.

  1. Learning and assessment design models and tools that guide and support E-learning course design and the advance planning of specific learning analytics and evaluation requirements.
  2. Analytics methods, including learning behavior analysis and predictive analytics, for facilitating personalization of online learning and improving the retention rate of MOOC courses.
  3. Visualization interfaces for understanding the huge amount of raw data collected by MOOC platforms as well as the analytical results.
