Description: Interoperability specifications and architectures for learning analytics are rapidly evolving, but the education sector is poorly prepared for understanding the implications of these developments. The current state of specifications and architectures is surveyed, with a particular focus on xAPI, IMS Caliper, PAR, Apereo and Jisc. The readiness of user groups to engage with the development process is discussed, and found to be weak. Finally the report proposes some ways of approaching the formulation of strategic choices on interoperability strategy that institutions are facing.
