Third Multimodal Learning Analytics Workshop and Grand Challenges (MLA 2014)
Hosted by the ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI 2014)
Istanbul - Turkey, 12-16 November 2014

Advances in Learning Analytics are expected to contribute new empirical findings, theories, methods, and metrics for understanding how students learn. It also could contribute to improving pedagogical support for students’ learning through assessment of new digital tools, teaching strategies, and curricula.

The most recent direction within this area is Multimodal Learning Analytics, which emphasises the analysis of natural rich modalities of communication during situated learning activities. This includes students’ speech, writing, and nonverbal interaction (e.g., gestures, facial expressions, gaze, etc.). A primary objective of multimodal learning analytics is to analyse coherent signal, activity, and lexical patterns to understand the learning process and provide feedback to learners in order to improve it. The Third International Workshop on Multimodal Learning Analytics will bring together international researchers in multimodal interaction and systems, cognitive and learning sciences, educational technologies, and related areas to advance research on multimodal learning analytics.
