What are Learning Analytics?

Commentary by Stephen Downes

"Learning analytics," writes George Siemens, "is the use of intelligent data, learner-produced data, and analysis models to discover information and social connections, and to predict and advise on learning. EDUCAUSE's Next Generation learning initiative offers a slightly different definition 'the use of data and models to predict student progress and performance, and the ability to act on that information'." My own interest in learning analytics is pretty minimal (let's get AI right before working on applied AI) but a lot of people are very enthused about it.
