Super exciting, we got funding for a 4-year project from Vetenskapsrådet (Swedish Research Council) to conduct research on learning analytics and the application of machine learning in educational settings!
The project starts in january 2020.
Researchers: Jalal Nouri, Panagiotis Papapetrou, Mohammad Saqr and Thashmee Karunaratne
We received the best paper award for our paper presented at the International Conference of Education, Training and Informatics. See reference below.

We are happy to announce that the first issue of the International Journal of Learning Analytics and Artificial Intelligence for Education is now published. See the full issue at: www.i-jai.org
The Nordic Learning Analytics Research Symposium took place at Copenhagen University the 21-22st of November gathering nordic researchers focusing on learning analytics. Jalal attended the symposium as the representative of the learning analytics research group at Stockholm University.
Paper written by Jalal Nouri, Mohammed Saqr and Uno Fors has been accepted to be presented at ICETI 2019. The paper focus on the application of machine learning methods to understand and improve digital assessment.
Mohammed Saqr successfully defended his thesis “Using Learning Analytics to Understand and Support Collaborative Learning” the 22nd October. Professor Barbara Wasson from the Centre for the Science of Learning & Technology (University of Bergen) acted as opponent and she did a great job in both enlighting the audience about the field of Learning Analytics as well as shedding light on the contributions of Mohammeds thesis to the field.
Grading committee: Associate professor Luis Pablo Prieto Santos (Tallin University), Associate professor Mona Lundin (Gothenbourg University) and Professor Tore West (Stockholm University)
Supervisors: Uno Fors and Jalal Nouri
