17th in the Top 100 Influential Education Blogs
I don’t know who Onalytica is and if they do high-quality rankings, but I found the methodology interesting. This blog came in 17th among the top 100 most influential education blogs. What’s surprising is that it has one of the lowest “popularity” rankings in the top 20, but one of the highest “over-influence” ratio of influence-to-popularity. As Alfred Thompson suggested to me on Facebook, that points to the small community of CS Ed researchers and bloggers, but that a high percentage of them read here. I appreciate that!
For a detailed explanation of the methodology we refer to out previous post. As before, we report the following metrics: Onalytica Influence Index, Popularity and Over-Influence.
Influence index is the impact factor of the blogs, similar to the impact factor of academic journals; Popularity measures how well-known a blog is among other education blogs and Over-Influence seeks to capture how influential a blog is compared to how popular it is.
The movements in the ranking have been caused by a change in the quantity and quality of citations that a blog has received. If a blog has gone up it means that it has been cited by more influential blogs lately and/or has received a higher number of citations. Moreover, there are new influential blogs that we have only recently started monitoring.
