Welcome to the research group “Computational Methods in Modeling and Analysis of Learning Processes
University of Duisburg-Essen

In colaps we aim to explore the use of computational data analytics, namely machine-learning and data mining, with the aim to support learning from the perspective of personalization and adaptation and in relation to tutoring feedback and scaffolding.

Our research focuses on data analytics to facilitate learning in formal education and ultimately in modeling, monitoring and guiding complex human activities. Our interests extend to using modern technologies in order to facilitate and promote learning by bridging the gap between theory and modern, data driven, technology-oriented practice: combining top-down, established pedagogical theories with bottom-up, data-driven computational approaches.
