One of OEDO TAs, Sara Ayman Metwalli, gave a presentation titled “Going Deep with edX Insights on TokyotechX Introduction to Deep Earth Science Part 1” at Open edX Conference, Stanford University on June 14th. Below is her comment.
“Last June, I attended the Open edX Con in Stanford University to represent OEDO and TokyoTech by giving a presentation about the data analysis of Tokyotech’s first MOOC on the edX platform. The presentation was based on the information that can be obtained from the edX Insights platform; and what kind of drop out reasons do this information point to. The presentation lasted for approximately 30 mins, afterwards the audience participated with questions and/or comments on the data analysis procedure itself or the results of the analysis. The rest of the conference was extremely interesting and the topics discussed varied from the development of the Open edX platform to how participated universities used the platform to build their online education experiences. Attending this event was a pleasure and a very enlightening experience.”
