Learners need meaningful designs, offering fine-grained control of time and progress during their learning experience. To do this, we “translate” their interactions into a sequence of useful and actionable information that support LD. 

Sensing technologies like, eye-tracking, motion cameras and wearables, combined with powerful AI and ML algorithms, have the capacity to empower teachers, learners and  researchers with useful and sometimes temporal insight. Utilising representative, objective, diverse and accurate data allows us to better understand learners’ and design meaningful experiences for them. 

This talk will highlight how collecting and combining learning analytics coming from multimodal streams can provide valuable information in designing meaningful learning experiences. 

This event will be particularly useful for those interested in multimodality; learning design; learning analytics and educational technology.
