Your click decides your fate: Inferring Information Processing and Attrition Behavior from MOOC Video Clickstream Interactions

WS 2014  ·  Tanmay Sinha, Patrick Jermann, Nan Li, Pierre Dillenbourg ·

In this work, we explore video lecture interaction in Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), which is central to student learning experience on these educational platforms. As a research contribution, we operationalize video lecture clickstreams of students into cognitively plausible higher level behaviors, and construct a quantitative information processing index, which can aid instructors to better understand MOOC hurdles and reason about unsatisfactory learning outcomes... Our results illustrate how such a metric inspired by cognitive psychology can help answer critical questions regarding students' engagement, their future click interactions and participation trajectories that lead to in-video & course dropouts. Implications for research and practice are discussed read more
