This is an overview of how Moodle will approach learning analytics under the leadership of Elizabeth Dalton. "Dalton believed the offerings of analytics spoke too much corporate and too little actual intervention. It surprised her when the community seemed to forget or overlook that 'learning analytics are about learning'. It is understandable that marketing materials and approaches are made in the context of a business case, especially for learning organizations focusing on the enterprise. But she fears the 'metaphor is going too far'." The article isn't very informative, but you'll want to follow the Moodle Analytics series, the link to the video (a great talk from Dalton) as well as the reference to Schiro's curriculum theory.
