Together with Behnam Taraghi, Anna Saranti and Sandra Schön we discussed and broad together what makes learning analytics smart – from our perspectives and experiences with some years of work (and several publications). Here your will find the whole publication or simply summarized as figure:
Learning Analytics (LA) is an emerging field; the analysis of a large amount of data helps us to gain deeper insights into the learning process. This contribution points out that pure analysis of data is not enough. Building on our own experiences from the field, seven features of smart learning analytics are described. From our point of view these features are aspects that should be considered while deploying LA.
