Preferred Features of Open Learner Models for University Students

Susan Bull

This paper describes features and purposes for opening the learner model to the learner. Building on previous studies of use of a range of open learner models, it considers the features that are preferred by university level, experienced open learner model users. Recommendations are presented to help guide open learner model designers in their choices of features to make available to learners, with reference to user control, privacy, navigation, visualisation content and detail, comparisons and releasing models to peers.
