Keywords:Learning analytics, community of inquiry, quantitative content analysis, social network analysis, trace data clustering
This paper describes a doctoral research that focuses on the development of a learning analytics framework for inquiry-based digital learning. This research builds on the the Community of Inquiry model (CoI) as a foundation commonly used in research and practice of digital learning and teaching. Specifically, the main contributions of this research are: i) the development of a novel text classification algorithm for (semi)automated message classification which enables for easier adoption of the CoI model, ii) understanding of the relationships between different socio-technological interactions and the dimensions of the CoI model.
