Barbara Wasson, "Learning Analytics: What Is It and What Is Its Role in Education?"
Barbara Wasson, University of Bergen, Norway
Learning Analytics (LA) has emerged over the past 8 years as a promising field of research and domain of practice. With roots in AI in Education, Educational Data Mining (EDM), and Big Data, the field comprises research into the challenges of collecting, analyzing and reporting data with the specific intent to improve learning and the contexts in which it occurs. In this talk I will give an overview of the field and reflect on its role in education using examples from current projects.
