About this book
President, Society for Learning Analytics Research
The future of learning analytics is bright. Educational institutions have already seen the many promising opportunities that it provides for advancing our understanding of different learning processes and enhancing them in a variety of settings. The Handbook of Learning Analytics provides a much needed entry point to this growing area and I am sure this publication will help sustain the already considerable momentum the field has generated.
