A few recent resources on learning analytics

A few resources from the past month or so that might be of interest:

1. EDUCAUSE’s fall EQ issue has a strong focus on learning and analytics. The Warger & Oblinger as well as the Grajek articles are particularly relevant for the analytics crowd.

2. Simon Buckingham Shum delivered a keynote for the ASCILITE conference last week on the topic of Learning Analytics: Dream, Nightmare, or Fairydust? Slides and recording have been posted.

3. We’ve set up an organization – Society for Learning Analytics Research – to promote analytics in education and learning and to provide researchers and others with a venue to connect and share ideas. To kick things off, we’ve posted a paper on open learning analytics. Background and info on the project are available.
