Contribute


Please use our light touch online form to recommend to us evidence that you think we should include.

The Hub aims to gather evidence about Learning Analytics research, application and impact. We welcome recommendations of evidence whether you are a researcher, teacher, manager, student or other interested party. Each recommendation will be reviewed by a member of the LACE project team and, if it falls within the remit of the Hub, it will be added.

Evidence you recommend may be in a report, academic paper, web-posting, etc. You will need to tell us the author, URL (or other reference) to the evidence and provide a brief description. You also have the option to tell us what sector and type of evidence it relates to and your personal thoughts about why it should be included. Thank you for your contribution.

Criteria

There are two categories of items in the Evidence Hub: Evidence, and Projects. All items on the Evidence Hub should meet the main criterion for inclusion: that they are directly relevant to learning analytics, as defined by the First International Conference on Learning Analytics and Knowledge (LAK11):

“the measurement, collection, analysis and reporting of data about learners and their contexts, for purposes of understanding and optimising learning and the environments in which it occurs”.

For Evidence, the item must also represent evidence related to at least one of the four LACE propositions. The evidence must be of a sufficient quality that a reasonable researcher in the field would consider it evidence.
