3D Printing Social Learning Analytics: Engagement Trees Grow in SuiteC

The turn in learning sciences towards more sociocultural-oriented theories of development has no doubt spurred an interest in creating virtual learning environments that privilege peer-to-peer collaboration, discourse, and content sharing over more didactic, instructor-centered pedagogies. Join me in exploring software demos, course examples, and preliminary findings from the social learning software SuiteC, including a look at our unique 3D printed “Engagement Trees”- data objects representing student social participation in two online undergraduate courses.

SuiteC comprises three interrelated LTI apps that live inside our campus Canvas learning management system, and through custom API integrations, interact with native Canvas tools. The three apps include: 1) Asset Library for sharing, viewing discussing, and liking student-generated content organized by filters and hashtags; 2) Whiteboards for remixing Assets in the Library through individual/collaborative multimodal composing; and 3) Engagement Index for tracking and awarding social points displayed on a course leaderboard and visualizing this social participation in a weekly analytics report. Visit https://www.ets.berkeley.edu/suitec for more info.

Drawing from a social learning analytics toolkit and an assemblage approach, this project reports preliminary findings from SuiteC implementation in two online learning courses, visualizing patterns and trends in social participation in relation to SuiteC features and the pedagogical orientations of the courses.
