Interview with Erik Duval at LAK15


During LAK15 Tore Hoel, Hendrik Drachsler and Maren Scheffel took the opportunity to interview a number of international experts in learning analytics. Over the next few weeks we will be publishing these interviews which revolved around two questions:

  • What barriers have the learning analytics community overcome in the last 3-5 years?
  • What is the future for learning analytics in the next five years?

In this interview Professor Erik Duval from the Department of Computer Science at KU Leuven, Belgium the considers these questions. Reflecting on the past Erik discusses how the field of learning analytics has developed over the last five years and its potential to empower students an teachers. Looking forward to the next five years he discusses the dangers and opportunities for LA research, and is excited about using new technologies like wearable technologies and ambient learning spaces to provide real time feedback to students and teachers in face to face settings.

The video is available on YouTube and embedded below.

All the interviews are available on the LACE project YouTube channel, as well as the videos page on this site.
