FacebookTwitterGoogle+LinkedIn

Flux Capacitor is the blog of Fluxicon, the company behind Disco, one of the most widely used comercial tools for Process Mining. Since 2009, Flux Capacitor has published dozens of articles of high usefulness for both practitioners and researchers in Process Mining: practical tips, discussions, tutorials, case studies, interviews, …  But, what is the most useful article for a process mining data scientist?

Screen Shot 2016-06-20 at 20.43.42In order to answer this question, the ProcessMiningUC group, the research group in Process Mining of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC), has elaborated a ranking based on the opinion of 15 business process management and process mining experts. Each expert evaluated (from 1 to 15 points) the 15 most useful articles for a process scientist according to their criteria, among all the articles published in 7 years.

According to the ranking the most useful article is Why Process Mining is Ideal for Data Scientists. The article, with 136 points and a considerable distance with the second position,  presents a brief description of the field and provides pointers to additional material. The second article, Change in Perspective with Process Mining, presents the capacities of process mining to obtain a process perspective on your data,  while the third, How is Process Mining different from,  highlights the differences between process mining and other areas such as Data Mining, BPM, Lean Six Sigma, Business Intelligence, or Simulation.

“Does taking a MOOC as a complement for remedial courses have an effect on my learning outcomes?” published at EC-TEL 2016

FacebookTwitterGoogle+LinkedIn

The article “Does taking a MOOC as a complement for remedial courses have an effect on my learning outcomes? A pilot study on calculus” written by Mar Pérez-Sanagustín, Josefina Hernández, Claudio Gelmi, Isabel Hilliger and Fernanda Rodríguez will be published in EC-TEL 2016. This paper presents the results of a pilot study about students’ adoption and learning outcomes of 4 MOOCs proposed as a complementary resource for traditional remedial courses on calculus.

EC-TEL imagen

The data analysis shows that up to 16% of the students were active in the MOOCs under study, mostly during the days before taking the diagnostic exam that preceded the traditional face-to-face remedial courses. We observe that active students had more chances of passing the diagnostic exam and skipping the required remedial courses. However, we found no significant differences on the remedial course exam scores between the students that were active in the MOOCs and those that were not. These findings suggest that MOOCs are a good solution to strengthen-ing skills and reviewing concepts, but that more guidance is needed when used as a complement to traditional f2f courses.
