    Tools and Methods to Help Learners Self-Regulate Learning and Increase Learning Success

    [Jun 2013 - Dec 2014] SSHRC Insight grant.

    The project will extend, apply, and empirically validate new methods of learning analytics that useintensively sampled, fine-grained, temporally ordered data about learning activities to model learning,self-regulated learning (SRL), and motivation as dynamic processes. My current work is related todiscourse analysis, process mining, concept maps extraction and application of natural languageprocessing tools and technologies.

    Analytics for Social Learning Environments

    [Oct 2012 - Mar 2013] NSERC Engage grant.

    This is industrial collaborative research project with Desire2Learn, leading vendor in the technologyenhanced learning market. The main objectives of the project are analytics of learning quality insocial learning environments and concept comprehension in social learning. Major outcome of thisproject is development of open-source, semi-automatic software for content analysis of students’transcripts.
