Dear LASI Community,

As we kick off LASI week, a very helpful note on video resources from the European LACE Project..

***********************************************

It is the week of the SoLAR Learning Analytics Summer Institutes (LASI) around the world and on behalf of the Learning Analytics Community Exchange (LACE) this is to update you on the resources that LACE is making available to support LASI Locals.
 
Short interviews with leaders in the field – A series of ten video interviews recorded at the LAK15 conference can be used to introduce learning analytics and to stimulate discussion about future directions and challenges https://www.youtube.com/user/LaceprojectEu  
Research and practice in learning analytics – Also on our YouTube channel, a set of three talks on learning analytics. Professor Denise Whitelock talks about the learning analytics tool Open Essayist (17 mins), Dr Doug Clow talks about creating an action plan for learning analytics (37 mins), and Jenna Mittelmeier talks about her research into the roles that culture and personality play in an online learning experience (18 mins) https://www.youtube.com/user/LaceprojectEu  
Learning analytics discussion – LACE team members and others will be talking live on Adobe Connect at 10am (BST) Friday 19 June, and the discussion will be available as a recording after that time. We will be using the  document attached to this email as a basis for discussion about the future development of learning analytics. Everyone is welcome to join us in the live discussion at https://connect.uninett.no/lace  
We hope that you will be able to use these resources to support a LASI Local in your area, or to support future learning analytics events.
 
Regards
Rebecca Ferguson
LACE Project
