After analyzing results across tens of thousands of learners and hundreds of online educational interventions, the data clearly demonstrates that the more engaged a learner is throughout the learning experience the greater the educational impact.
This comparative analysis revealed that clinician learners who participated in the ArcheViewer-powered education demonstrated changes in knowledge and competence that were nearly FOUR-times greater than that of the control group who participated in a traditional online series utilizing the same primary video content.
How many times have we as teachers been confronted with situations in which we really were not sure what to do? We “flew by the seat of our pants,” usually doing with our learners what had been done with us. It would be useful to be able to turn to

"analytics is predicated on “big data” but in education, big data will not exist until we sort out the current failure of interoperability"
By spotting patterns in the data produced by students’ online learning activity, learning analytics systems should be able to help:
predict student progress;
inform adaptive learning strategies (sequencing digital learning activities

Since one of the requirements of the fellowship was a research paper, exploring the phenomenon of MOOCs seemed an appropriate topic. This essay had to
"George Miller famously said in the context of medical education that, “assessment drives learning,” and Richard Hays in a different take on the same subject said, “if assessment drives learning, then let’s ensure that it drives learning in the right direction.” Both quotes emphasise the importance of assessment in medical
"When doctors were asked how often they used certain sources to gain information used to diagnose, treat and care for patients, 68% said they “frequently” consulted professional journals and 60% said the same about colleagues. And just under half — 46% — said general web browsers. Conferences and events and
