Canvalytics Research Group

The overall goal of our research project is to apply computational approaches from data sciences and educational data mining research to mine and understand usage data collected by Canvas, the Learning Management System (LMS) used by Utah State University. By applying innovative data mining algorithms to this complex dataset, we will better understand how instructors and students use Canvas and explore what usage patterns lead to more or less productive learning outcomes.
