The LAPS Project: Using Machine Learning Techniques For Early Student Support
Published 2019 · Computer Science
This chapter introduces the LAPS project, which is able to analyze progressions of former students and to make statements on possible risks for currently enrolled students by using machine learning techniques. It is also possible to get information about courses, lectures, and student cohorts. The project does not only include a web-based software, it also consists of a student consultation process which respects students’ self-responsibility, individuality, confidentiality, and anonymity. This chapter provides insights how the project is technically developed at the Hochschule der Medien, Stuttgart, Germany, and how it can be used in consultation situations.
