Shen, Huajie; Liu, Teng; Zhang, Yueqin – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2020
This study aims to create learning path navigation for target learners by discovering the correlation among micro-learning units. In this study, the learning path is defined as a sequence of learning units used to realize a learning goal, and a period used for realizing the learning goal is regarded as a learning cycle. Furthermore, the learning…

Siebra, Clauirton Albuquerque; Santos, Ramon N.; Lino, Natasha C. Q. – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2020
This work proposes a dropout prediction approach that is able to self-adjust their outcomes at any moment of a degree program timeline. To that end, a rule-based classification technique was used to identify courses, grade thresholds and other attributes that have a high influence on the dropout behavior. This approach, which is generic so that it…

Milat, Iness Nedji; Seridi, Hassina; Moudjari, Abdelkader – International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, 2020
Recently, discovering learner behaviour has taken more attention in the field of e-learning. It aims to gain useful insights into the learning process of students despite the absence of direct interaction with teachers. In fact, the only available source of information in such environments is the log file that represents all possible interactions…
