IDEA: Evidence-Based Online Learning Courseware Engineering


This research aims to improve student learning effectiveness, efficiency, and enjoyment in online courses (aka MOOCs) by using online learning data to provide constructive feedback to course developers and instructors. The feedback provides assistance with the design and improvement of course activities and effective instruction. Online course development is often guided primarily by the intuition of the instructor. This research seeks to enable course improvements using a data-driven approach by developing methods to measure the effects of course redesign.
