Policy recommendations for learning analytics

The LACE – Learning Analytics Community Exchange project continues to work on discussing important aspects of learning analytics (LA) and educational data mining (EDM) as well as to promote through a series of publications this field of educational research. In the fifth newsletter of the project there are two featured policy papers: one is a manifesto of LA in the workplace, the other is the result of several stakeholder discussions about the relationship between LA and policy and practice.

Other featured items in the newsletter include invitation to the next networking event of the Society for Learning Analytics and Research and an invitation to a workshop on the use of big data for education at ICT2015. LACE has also continued its LACE Review papers series with a paper on Framework of Quality Indicators, the Evidence of the Month series featuring intelligent tutoring systems and its FAQ on barriers in making use of LA.
