social-learning-in-large-online-audiences-of-health-professionals-improving-dialogue-with-automated-tools
Presenter: Alvaro Margolis, President and CEO, EviMed Corp USA
Date: 15 June 2020
Time: 14:00 (2pm BST +1)

In association with AMEE Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Committee

Summary: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) bring about the opportunity to reach large international audiences of health professionals. However, change in clinical practice eventually needs social interaction, to validate the new knowledge with trusted peers.
How can meaningful dialogue take place without scaling up expert tutoring.
The extensive experience from social network applications such as Facebook or Twitter provides an opportunity to imrpove dialogue among peers and with experts automatically and seamlessly, as part of what is called Social Learning Analytics (SLA). Large amounts of data about prior relationships among participants in a course - similar to Facebook and other social applications -, among participants and course materials - similar to Netflix or Amazon -, as well as natural language processing could be obtained, analyzed and used to improve the educational processes and outcomes.
In this webinar, a series of examples with pilot uses of SLA in the context of massive online courses for physicians and other health care professionals will be shown, including forcasting of academic accomplishment, Facebook like dialogue with other course participants and faculty, crowdsourcing and friendsourcing for recommending study materials or future courses, and natural language processing to classify posts in online discussions.
