Temporary contract until March 2021

Application closing date: Thursday 29 November, 2018 – 17:00.

The Knowledge Media Institute (KMi) is a distinct research unit within the Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) at the Open University. KMi is looking for a Research Assistant, a Research Associate or a Research Fellow to work on the IoC project – how we can adapt, deploy and mainstream our learning analytics tool across a number of educational establishments nationally.

The IoC data analytics work will build on the experience of the OU Analyse project (http://analyse.kmi.open.ac.uk) which aims to increase the student retention rate at the Open University and at the same time to improve the quality of education. Internet technologies enable universities to offer their students educational resources online and, at the same time to collect information about the use of these resources. By analysing students’ interactions with the virtual learning environment, it is possible to identify those who might be at risk of failing the course and offer them well-targeted additional support.
