Learning Analytics is the collection and analysis of data about learners and their contexts, the aim being to understand and optimiz learning experiences and the environments in which they occur. The main objective is to uncover hitherto hidden information in educational data, so as to gain new insights and prepare the information for different educational stakeholders (learners, trainers and managers). This information can support individual learning and enhance facilitation and training quality, as well as improving organizational knowledge management and system administration.
