Main Article Content
In the last 7 years, since the first LAK conference, Learning Analytics has grown rapidly as a field from a small group of interested scholars and practitioners to one of the most scientifically successful and institutionally accepted areas of Learning and Educational Technologies. Learning Analytics is often referred as a "Middle-Space" where experts from diverse fields (from the Learning Sciences, Computer Science, Human-Computer Interaction, Psychology and Behavioural Sciences, just to name a few) share their perspectives on how to better understand and optimize learning processes and environments using this new instrument called Data Science.
