A post conference Workshop was organised by Lace together with Gala and Manuskills EU projects for the World Manufacturing Forum 2014 held at the marvellous Palazzo Mezzanotte, the headquarters of the Italian stock exchange, in central Milan in July 2014. The workshop was dedicated to Innovating Manufacturing Education & Training and it was the perfect match for the general WMF event, a high end executive gathering of world leading industry stakeholders, governors and academics to discuss the future of industrial policies and investments at the dawn of what many call, the 4th industrial revolution. The World Manufacturing Forum main web…

The Open Forum Conference session organised by LACE in Oslo in June hit a nerve with the community of standardisation experts attending the conference prior to their full week meeting in Oslo. In the meeting of the ISO committee working on standards for Learning, Education and Training, ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC36, there was a race among the national body representatives to position themselves to lead a new work item on learning analytics. The committee decided to establish an Ad Hoc group to prepare scope and rationale for a new Working Group on LA. The Ad Hoc is lead by the SC36…

The LACE Workshop, “Developing a Learning Analytics Strategy for a Higher Education Institution” took place on June 17th 2014, with over 35 participants exploring the issues and considering the question of what such a strategy would look like. Approaching Strategy as a Business Model The approach taken was to use an adapted version of the Business Model Canvas – see the workshop home page for more information – to attempt to frame a strategic response to Learning Analytics (LA). The use of this approach, in which the Canvas was used flexibly rather than rigidly, was predicated on the idea that…

The LACE team was well represented at the EDEN (European Distance and e-Learning Network) conference held in Zagreb on 10-13 June which brought together just over 300 participants mostly from Europe. For those not familiar with this event, EDEN is one of Europe’s largest and most long-established networks of institutions and professionals working in e-learning and is about to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2015. Traditionally, the people who take part in this annual conference come from academic institutions led by many of Europe’s open universities however this year with its emphasis on e-learning at work and in the workplace…

Learning Analytics is now moving from being a research interest to a wider community who seek to apply it in practice. As this happens, the challenge of efficiently and reliably moving data between systems becomes of vital practical importance. System interoperability can reduce this challenge in principle, but deciding where to drill down into the details will be easier with a view of the “big picture”, so the LACE project has published a short briefing on the topic of learning analytics and interoperability. This introductory briefing, which is aimed at non-technical readers who are concerned with developing plans for sustainable…
