Data sharing is a precondition for being able to scale up learning analytics in schools and universities. LACE project has now published a report on Requirements for Data Sharing, and the first take on a Roadmap of actions necessary to achieve interoperability.
The issues for data sharing are identified through case studies and other means, and are analysed from a technical, semantic, organisational, and legal perspective, following the structure of the European Interoperability Framework. The issues are also assessed as to whether they could easily be addressed or would appear as a blocker of progress. Even if the research community is rather optimistic of the possibility to “scale up” learning analytics to create big impact using big data, this report shows the need for more research and community exchange to frame, sort and prioritise the issues of data sharing. .
