Abstract

In the last few decades, the number of people connected online for educational purpose is increasing dramatically and consequently a huge quantity of data is being generated. This data is mainly the “traces” or “digital breadcrumbs” that students leave as they interact with the online learning environments. Confident that this data can teach us about learners’ behaviors and help us enhancing learning experience, there has been a growing interest in the automatic analysis of such data. A research area referred to as Learning Analytics (LA) is identified. According to Johnson and al. (2011), LA "refers to the interpretation of a wide range of data produced by and gathered on behalf of students in order to assess academic progress, predict future performance, and spot potential issues".

At the same time, the quantity of published linked data is increasing on the web. Many institutions adhere to Open Linked Data community making available another type of data which can benefit LA. LA can be seen as a twofold approach, acting on :i) Personal Learning data (data from individual and private learning experience) and ii) open educational linked data (public data published on the web).

The main objective of the session is to provide a venue for scientific discourse to exchange opinions and ideas on how to advance theory and practice in Learning Analytics. How learning experiences can benefit from the huge quantity of published and unpublished data? How can we combine open data and private in a way to empower advanced educational services, such as recommendation of suitable educational resources to individual learners or program and institutions benchmarking? Which concepts, approaches and algorithms are appropriate to consume the two types of data?
