Abstract
Learning analytics is not a trend anymore. It is a must in education. Whenever we hear about the use of information technologies in education, the term learning analytics is mentioned. However, learning usually comes more as an afterthought than a core part of educational processes involving the use of IT. Think about how many times have you heard the sentence "... and, of course, we provide learning analytics with it" in the past couple of years. Right? Yet, despite the increasing amount of theoretical and applied research on learning analytics, there are still needs that are practically left unattended in most recent research. For example, the role of learning analytics in the current paradigm of student-centred and competence-based learning, information about successful learning analytics-based interventions, cross-validation of prior research, standards for learning analytics, or learning analytics and instructional design. In addition, the emergence and growth of new technologies in educational contexts (e.g. smartphones, virtual and augmented reality, social networks), and the ever changing nature of existing ones, bring new challenges and opportunities for research and practice in learning analytics.
