Special Issue on Learning Analytics: Published

Dragan Gasevic and I recently edited a special issue of Journal of Educational Technology and Society. The issue is now available online (.pdf). From our editorial:

This issue reflects the rapid maturation of learning analytics as a domain of research. The papers in this issue indicate LA as a field with potential for improving teaching and learning. Less clear, currently, is the long-term trajectory of LA as a discipline. LA borrows from numerous fields including computer science, sociology, learning sciences, machine learning, statistics, and “big data”. Coalescing as a field will require leadership, openness, collaboration, and a willingness for researchers to approach learning analytics as a holistic process that includes both technical and social domains.
