LearnLab's two main goals are to enhance scientific understanding of robust learning in educational settings and to create a research facility to support field-based experimentation, data collection and data mining. LearnLab is advancing both basic research on learning in knowledge-rich settings and applied research by contributing to a scientific basis for the design and engineering of educational approaches that should have a broad and lasting effect on student achievement.
LearnLab has enriched learning science by establishing and supporting unprecedented collaborations among current and future laboratory scientists, computer scientists and instructors. LearnLab has become the world’s best example of big data and big science being applied to the question of how students learn.
LearnLab enabling technologies support learning analytics and educational data mining, authoring of intelligent tutoring systems, online course development, computer-support collaborative learning.
