Abstract
For MOOC learners, lecture video viewing is the central learning activity. This paper reports a large-scale analysis of in-video interactions. We categorize the video behaviors into patterns by employing a clustering methodology, based on the available types of interactions, namely, pausing, forward and backward seeking and speed changing. We focus on how learners view MOOC videos with these interaction patterns, especially on exploring the relationship between video interaction and perceived video difficulty, video revisiting behaviors and student performance. Our findings provide insights for improving the MOOC learning experiences.

Lecture videos are the major components in MOOCs. It is common for MOOC analytics researchers to model video behaviors in order to identify at-risk students. Much of the work emphasized prediction. However, we have little empirical understanding about these video interactions, especially at the click-level. For example, what kind of video interactions may indicate a student has experienced difficulty? To what extent can video interactions tell us about perceived video difficulty? In this paper, ...

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-...

The current generation of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) attract a diverse student audience from all age groups and over 196 countries around the world. Researchers, educators, and the general public have recently become interested in how the learning experience in MOOCs differs from that in traditional courses. A major component of the learning experience is how students navigate through course content. This paper presents an empirical study of how students navigate through MOOCs, and is, ...

With thousands of learners watching the same online lecture videos, analyzing video watching patterns provides a unique opportunity to understand how students learn with videos. This paper reports a large-scale analysis of in-video dropout and peaks in viewership and student activity, using second-by-second user interaction data from 862 videos in four Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on edX. We find higher dropout rates in longer videos, re-watching sessions (vs first-time), and tutorials (v...

espanolLos estudiantes se unen a un curso con la motivacion de persistir durante parte o la totalidad del curso, pero varios factores, como el desgaste o la falta de satisfaccion, pueden llevarlos a desconectarse o abandonar por completo. Las intervenciones educativas dirigidas a estos factores de riesgo puede ayudar a reducir las tasas de abandono. Sin embargo, el diseno de intervencion requiere la capacidad de predecir con precision los abandonos y con tiempo suficiente para permitir la admini...

As MOOCs grow in popularity, the relatively low completion rates of learners has been a central criticism. This focus on completion rates, however, reflects a monolithic view of disengagement that does not allow MOOC designers to target interventions or develop adaptive course features for particular subpopulations of learners. To address this, we present a simple, scalable, and informative classification method that identifies a small number of longitudinal engagement trajectories in MOOCs. Lea...

Abstract “Circuits and Electronics” (6.002x), which began in March 2012, was the first MOOC developed by edX, the consortium led by MIT and Harvard. Over 155,000 students initially registered for 6.002x, which was composed of video lectures, interactive problems, online laboratories, and a discussion forum. As the course ended in June 2012, researchers began to analyze the rich sources of data it generated. This article describes both the first stage of this research, which examined the students’ ...

An optical instrument for the gathering and distribution of light comprises a cylindrical and a planar body formed of transparent material and optically coupled together. The cylindrical body has an elliptic and circular outer surface covered with inwardly reflecting material and a light source arranged along one focal line for the elliptic surface portion. Light gathered by the cylindrical body is transmitted to the planar body and is diffused thereby over one major surface. The instrument is a...

With more and more streaming media servers becoming commonplace, streaming video has now become a popular medium of instruction, advertisement, and entertainment. With such prevalence comes a new challenge to the servers: Can they track browsing behavior of users to determine what interest users? Learning this information is potentially valuable not only for improved customer tracking and context-sensitive e-commerce, but also in the generation of fast previews of videos for easy pre-downloads. ...

While course videos are powerful teaching resources in online courses, students often have difficulty sustaining their attention while watching videos and comprehending the content. This study adopted teacher annotations on videos as an instructional support to engage students in watching course videos. Forty-two students in an undergraduate course at a university in Taiwan were randomly divided into a control group that watched a course video without teacher annotations, and an experimental gro...

Online video-recorded lectures have become an increasingly more important means for student learning (e.g., in flipped classrooms). However, getting students to process these lectures sufficiently to come to class well-prepared is a challenge for educators. This paper investigates the effectiveness of open-ended embedded questions for accomplishing that. An experiment compared a video-recorded lecture presented online with and without such questions. No feedback was given on responses to the que...

Abstract In the context of learning systems, identifying causal relationships among information presented to the user, their behavior and cognitive effort required/exerted to understand and perform a task is key to building effective learning experiences, and to maintain engagement in learning processes. An unexplored question is whether our interaction with presented information affects our cognitive effort (and behaviour), or vice-versa. We investigate causal relationship between information p...

Analysis of learning behavior of MOOC enthusiasts has become a posed challenge in the Learning Analytics field, which is especially related to video lecture data, since most learners watch the same online lecture videos. It helps to conduct a comprehensive analysis of such behaviors and explore various learning patterns for learners and predict their performance by MOOC courses video. This paper exploits a temporal sequential classification problem by analyzing video clickstream data and predict...

MOOCs were created to change the way universities provide education. If to some extent they have succeeded, since they enable many people to attend them without prerequisites and conditions, it is observed that a very small percentage of those who participate finally manage to complete them. In the present study, which is part of the first researcher’s doctoral research, we examine the extent to which helping learners apply the Mental Contrasting with Implementation Intentions (MCII) self-regula...

Mobile applications for MOOCs (Massive Open On-line Courses) offer the possibility to download learning material to enable network independent learning sessions. The management of downloaded content on mobile devices is a manual process for the learner, which has the potential for automation. This includes the deletion of learning material that is likely to be no longer consumed. In this paper, a metric was defined to quantify learners’ references to previous videos based on the order in which t...

MOOCs have great potential to innovate education, but lack of personalization. In this paper, we show how FUMA, a data-driven framework for student modeling and adaptation, can help understand how to provide personalized support to MOOCs students, specifically targeting video watching behaviors. We apply FUMA across several MOOCs to show how to: (i) discover video watching behaviors that can be detrimental for or conductive to learning; (ii) use these behaviors to detect ineffective learners at ...

While pattern mining is characterized by empirical examinations the applied solutions propagated in the patterns are only rarely the subject or the result of empirical tests. However, confidence that a pattern will serve its purpose can only be obtained through testing and using them in practice.This article uses the pattern VIDEO SEGMENTATION as a use case to present an iterative approach on how to integrate iterative empirical tests into the elaboration of design patterns. This approach aims t...
