Dataset name UQ edX
Dataset description
The dataset comprises learning analytics generated from UQx, edX courses run at The University of Queensland. The edX platform provides raw database dumps and clickstreams that record user behaviour. This data is then analysed, transformed, and put into a dashboard to assist UQx staff in understanding user behaviour, for example, the level of enrolled students' engagement, how and when they navigate the course content, and so on. It also allows staff to monitor the course drop-out rate and identify, if possible, any events or triggers that cause enrolled students to abandon their course. The data assists in planning for future course development.
