UFIT is seeking instructors to join the My Learning Analytics (MyLA) pilot study in the spring semester. MyLA empowers students to improve their academic outcomes by providing data visualizations for their customized goals and progress monitoring; and to view their activities relative to their peers. Online courses will provide the most data but any course using Files, Assignments/Quizzes, and Grades will generate actionable data for the students.
If you choose to participate, it just takes a few clicks to enable MyLA in your spring course shell and notify your students. Data collection will include student surveys and instructor focus groups and/or interviews, as well as system logs data. Your participation in this activity is completely voluntary. We believe there are no risks to you for participating in this study. There is also no direct compensation to instructors who elect to participate. If you have questions about your rights, contact the UF IRB office, PO Box 100173, Gainesville, FL 32611, and reference #202102061.
Please contact Dr. Heather Maness (email@example.com) in UFIT’s Center for Instructional Technology and Training with any questions you may have about the spring 2022 pilot, your participation rights, or to participate.
