What is Open Learning Analytics?

Mohamed Amine Chatti, Mohamed Amine Chatti's ongoing research on Knowledge, Learning, Sept 16, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a short post that could benefit from much more detail. After describing various aspects of open learning (open practice, open access, open standards, open participation, etc.) the author says "the concept of open learning analytics covers all the aspects of ”openness” outlined above. It refers to an ongoing analytics process that encompasses diversity at all four dimensions of the learning analytics reference model." All very good. But does the platform exist? It doesn't seem to. And the core question here is whether people care enough about learning analytics (I know I don't) to build such an open platform.
