Introduction to Social Network Analysis with Threadz

Event Date & Time

  • February 26, 2019
    1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Description

Threadz is a plugin tool for Canvas that allows users to visualize the social dynamics of their discussion forums. This tool can be deployed as either an instructor-facing tool or for both students and instructors to see and use.

In this workshop, we will survey the literature on Social Network Analysis, introduce Threadz, and cover use cases for effectively using Threadz to monitor and reflect on discussions in Canvas.

This workshop will also provide an introduction to other learning analytics tools that are currently being piloted at UBC as part of the Learning Analytics Project, and there will be opportunities to provide feedback on features that could make learning analytics tools more useful for instructors and students.

If you would like to use Threadz in your course, please contact the Learning Technology Hub:
