Students' privacy and personal data protection

Go-Lab cares about students’ data protection, so privacy features have been built in by design. Students’ privacy is guaranteed, as students do not need to provide any email address to log in, merely only a nickname, which protects their identities from anyone but the teacher (as in a real classroom).  If you want to see your students’ data, you can ask students to login with known pre-assigned nicknames. You can then inspect and assess the students’ products (e. g., spreadsheets uploaded by the students, created concept maps, etc.).

You can also inspect and track patterns of usage of an ILS by using the learning analytics facilities (AngeLA). You decide whether you want to include AngeLA in the ILS. To activate AngeLA, add “user” AngeLA as a member to your ILS and give her editor rights.
