I find the connection of learning analytics and assessment and feedback interesting. Speaking from a student’s viewpoint where assessment and feedback form the base on which I learn, the application of social analytics would provide me with up-to-date information about my progress. Naturally, visuals have become a an integral part of what we do and its role in learning analytics is just as critical. Therefore, the visuals are there to accompany whatever data is being presented to establish a clearer message. Well, I guess the issue or privacy would be a factor with learning analytics since all of one’s browsing data will be explored; including location, type of computer etc. Not everyone is comfortable with the invasion or publication of all their personal information.
