October 27-28: UBC Learning Analytics Student API Hackathon

We would like to invite you to the 4th UBC Learning Analytics Hackathon, which will take place on October 27-28, 2018.   This event is organized by UBC Learning Analytics Pilot, LAVA and CAPICO.

Did you know that Canvas includes an API for accessing and modifying your learning data in your own programs and scripts?  Have you ever wondered if you could build a Canvas app that improves your own learning? This fall, the hackathon will explore how the Canvas API can be used to improve student learning and experiences.

This event brings together students, researchers, faculty, staff, and any other interested individuals to get hands-on experience with analyzing and working with the Canvas API. During this two-day hackathon, participants will form teams, work with Canvas’s REST API, design and build apps and dashboards, and then show off what they accomplished at the end of the weekend with a brief presentation. Prizes and awards will be given out for interesting projects.

During the hackathon, we will provide mentorship, refreshments, and lunches. You can learn more and register here: https://events.ctlt.ubc.ca/events/ubc-learning-analytics-student-api-hackathon/
