    Learning Analytics

    Many leading schools of higher education are usjng learning analytics – an advanced learning diagnostic tool to improve students’ learning outcomes.

    Using learning analytics, institutions and organisations are able to:

    • Track, collect and analyse learner-produced data

    • Assess the learner’s progress and predict the learner’s performance

    • Evaluate existing learning programmes and curriculum

    • Transform the teaching or learning environment

    At Kydon R&D, we work closely with our clients and research partners to develop innovative uses for learning analytics.

    Technology-Pedagogy Integrated Curriculum Design

    The use of technology in learning seems to be an afterthought for many organisations and institutions. Technology integration with learning is often ad hoc so benefits of learning technology are not fully exploited.

    Moreover, existing learning design models were built on pedagogical principles more appropriate for younger learners. Nevertheless, teachers and trainers still use the same pedagogical model of instruction for both children and adults.

    At Kydon R&D, we focus our research and development efforts on:

    • Developing andragogy as an alternative model of instruction to enhance learning for working adults and adult learners

    Integrating learning technology throughout the whole learning cycle, including the initial learning needs analysis.

    Adaptive Learning Content Technology

    Adaptive learning content technology will drive digital content for the next generation. Our Kydon R&D team actively engages in deep research on the applications of adaptive learning content technology. Intelligent adaptive learning enables developers and teachers to publish learning content using HTML5 without prior HTML or Javascript knowledge.

    How can this new learning technology benefit your organisation? Adaptive learning content can:

    • Enhance your teaching by simplifying lesson creation and delivery while remaining engaging and interactive

    • Enrich students’ learning experiences by offering sensory-rich learning

    • Provide highly customisable and adaptable templates to suit different teaching and learning styles

    • Harness the power of HTML5 – an advanced online development language to develop rich interactive multimedia to optimise learning 

Systemic approach to research 

Our research approach at Kydon is systemic and our learning solutions are inter-disciplinary, incorporating innovative ideas in instructional design, cognitive and educational psychology and information technology.

Internally, Kydon’s R&D team leverages knowledge across divisions in other domains such as digital content productiondesign and consultancy and learning space design to create added value for our clients.
