In this work, we explore video lec- ture interaction in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), which is central to stu- dent learning experience on these educa- tional platforms. As a research contribu- tion, we operationalize video lecture click- streams of students into cognitively plau- sible higher level behaviors, and construct a quantitative information processing in- dex, which can aid instructors to better un- derstand MOOC hurdles and reason about unsatisfactory learning outcomes. Our re-...

This work is an attempt to discover hidden structural configurations in learning activity sequences of students in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Leveraging combined representations of video click- stream interactions and forum activities, we seek to fundamentally understand traits that are predictive of decreasing engagement over time. Grounded in the inter- disciplinary field of network science, we follow a graph based approach to success- fully extract indicators of active and passive M...

In this paper, we apply social network analytic methods to unveil the structural dynamics of a popular open source goal oriented IRC community, Ubuntu. The primary objective is to track the development of this ever growing community over time using a social network lens and examine the dynamically changing participation patterns of people. Specifically, our research seeks out to investigate answers to the following question: How can the communication dynamics help us in delineating important sub...

In this work, we explain the underlying interaction mechanisms which govern students' influence on each other in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Specifically, we outline different ways in which students can be negatively exposed to their peers on MOOC forums and discuss a simple formulation of learning network diffusion, which formalizes the essence of how such an influence spreads and can potentially lead to student attrition over time. We also view the limitations of our student modeling ...

With an expansive and ubiquitously available gold mine of educational data, Massive Open Online courses (MOOCs) have become the an important foci of learning analytics research. The hope is that this new surge of development will bring the vision of equitable access to lifelong learning opportunities within practical reach. MOOCs offer many valuable learning experiences to students, from video lectures, readings, assignments and exams, to opportunities to connect and collaborate with others thro...

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) offer a new scalable paradigm for e-learning by providing students with global exposure and opportunities for connecting and interacting with millions of people all around the world. Very often, students work as teams to effectively accomplish course related tasks. However, due to lack of face to face interaction, it becomes difficult for MOOC students to collaborate. Additionally, the instructor also faces challenges in manually organizing students into teams...

With an expansive and ubiquitously available gold mine of educational data, Massive Open Online courses (MOOCs) have become the an important foci of learning analytics research. In this paper, we investigate potential reasons as to why are these digitalized learning repositories being plagued with huge attrition rates. We analyze an ongoing online course offered in Coursera using a social network perspective, with an objective to identify students who are actively participating in course discuss...

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (Scada) systems have been traditionally used since a long time to control the critical infrastructure of many countries. The amount of complexity in Scada networks coupled with lack of security has caused an urgency to upgrade existing systems to withstand hostile attacks. In our work, we dissect these large Scada networks at the protocol level on which they operate, and further dive into the packet filtering libraries that comprise the fundamental skelet...

* Corresponding author: Tel.: +82513201724, Email: dkkang@dongseo.ac.kr Abstract In recent years, with the enormous explosion of web based learning resources, personalization has become a critical factor for the success of services that wish to leverage the power of Web 2.0. However, the relevance, significance and impact of tailored content delivery in the learning domain is still questionable. Apart from considering only interaction based features like ratings and inferring learner preferences...
