Journal of Education and Social Science


Social science in education and curricular development receive wide attention by many researchers and educational institutions. Each social science has its own knowledge, information, skills, perspectives and methods of investigation. Selecting, organizing and presenting social science in textbooks is a major challenge for curriculum developers, for example. The objective of this journal is to bring together research contributions on the guidelines, design, specification, and implementation of rules, architectures, protocol for current and future technological innovation for education and social science.

    The purpose of this study is to analyze the effects of gender, age and educational experience on total scores for determining completion (over 60) and under commission (under 60). For this study, I collected log data (such as regularity of learning start interval, total number of learning and total learning time) and personal background data (number of courses of experience). The data were collected from 1,130 learners for 15 weeks and analyzed based on their learning analysis. The results were as follows: First, among the log data, the total learning time and number of learning had significant effects on the total score. The more the number of accesses to the LMS, the longer the learning time and the higher the total score. Second, among the personal background data, age had a significant effect on the total score. As they get older, they have a clearer sense of purpose for learning, which means that they are more likely to complete. The data used in this study was used when the learner started signing up to LMS for learning and collected the consent in advance from the personal information agreement.
