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. Open Learning Analytics Network - Summit Europe 2014.

LOCO-Analyst. LOCO-Analyst is an educational tool aimed at providing teachers with feedback on the relevant aspects of the learning process taking place in a web-based learning environment, and thus helps them improve the content and the structure of their web-based courses.


LOCO-Analyst aims at providing teachers with feedback regarding: • all kinds of activities their students performed and/or took part in during the learning process, • the usage and the comprehensibility of the learning content they had prepared and deployed in the LCMS, • contextualized social interactions among students (i.e., social networking) in the virtual learning environment. This Web site provides some basic information about LOCO-Analyst, its functionalities and implementation. DANCE Talk Series.
