Because Scholar has no documents or files, we can do deep analytics on the life of communities and the work of scholars. These analytics are not about surveillance—their focus is on formative evaluation, offering learners and creators constructive feedback that contributes to their final work. Knowledge making and learning are essentially social processes, and Scholar facilitates this, making organizational simplicity out of social complexity. Scholar has three main measures of knowledge: Know! Or the quality of the knowledge work; Focus! Or the effort contributed; and Help! Or community contributions. We have developed these ideas elsewhere in our e-Learning Ecologies book, our Coursera MOOC, and our writings on "big data.

According to Tempelaar, Rienties, and Giesbers (2015, p. 158) “a broad goal of learning analytics is to apply the outcomes of analysing data gathered by monitoring and measuring the learning process”. Learning analytics applications in education are expected to provide institutions with opportunities to support learner progression, but more importantly in the near future provide personalised, rich learning on a large scale (Rienties, Cross, & Zdrahal, 2016; Tempelaar et al., 2015; Tobarra, Robles-Gómez, Ros, Hernández, & Caminero, 2014). Substantial progress in learning analytics research relating to identifying at-risk students has been made in the last few years.

Back to the full list of FAQs about learning analytics: 1. What are Learning Analytics? There is no universally agreed definition of the term ‘learning analytics‘. One popular definition states that learning analytics are “the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data about learners and their contexts, for purposes of understanding and optimizing learning and the environments in which it occurs” [1]. In a series of briefing papers on analytics [2] the term was defined as “the process of developing actionable insights through problem definition and the application of statistical models and analysis against existing and/or simulated future data“. Erik Duval has proposed the definition “learning analytics is about collecting traces that learners leave behind and using those traces to improve learning” [3].
