- Let’s not forget: Learning Analytics are about Learning
This paper first introduces the field of learning analytics and outlines the lessons learned from well‐known case studies in the research literature. The paper then identifies the critical topics that require immediate research attention for learning analytics to make a sustainable impact on the research and practice of learning and teaching. The paper concludes by discussing a growing set of issues that if unaddressed, could impede the future maturation of the field. The paper stresses that learning analytics are about learning. As such, the computational aspects of learning analytics must be well integrated within the existing educational research. Authors: Dragan Gašević, Shane Dawson, George Siemens
