OnTask is the MOOC of the morning

The OnTask project has a  MOOC on using data to provide personalised student support – from OT partner the University of Texas, via edX.

OnTask “aims to improve the academic experience of students through the delivery of timely, personalised and actionable student feedback throughout their participation in a course.” The two-year programme is funded by the feds and is being piloted at the universities of Sydney, UNSW, South Australia, plus UTS and UTexas. (CMM, wrote about it here).

Abelardo Pardo from UniSA says the OnTask software tool is now in use in Germany, Spain, the USA and UK plus  South Africa, Canada, as well as Australia. It is also in the “incubation process” at the Apereo Foundation, which works on  open-source software in education.
