  1. The special issue on learning analytics should be really interesting and important. I think that analytics have the potential to seriously and positively change educational practice and paradigms, and I’ll be keen to see the contributions to this issue.

    I will be contributing an article and feel excited and challenged as to how to organize and present my ideas, methods and illustrations in order to make my article useful and useable to the readers. If anyone has suggestions or requests, pls. pass them on.
