Abstract
This presentation introduces GraphFES, a web service and application that processes data from message board activity in Moodle courses and transforms them into social graphs, to enable social learning analytics in Gephi, a social network analysis application. The presentation provides an overview of social learning analytics in online and computer-supported collaborative learning and describes existing tools for social network analysis of educational data. The main concepts associated to educational data sources (in this case, Moodle logs) and potential target tools for analysis (such as Gephi) will be described in detail. In order to illustrate the process of social learning analytics, the presentation will feature an example from a project-based learning course at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain). The example shows how different applications can combine to perform social learning analytics with data extracted from learning management systems, and serves as a starting point for discussion on the use and potential of social learning analytics for improvement of learning.
