Learning Analytics for Managing
Organizational and Individual Knowledge

Organizers: Kenji Hirata (Expert Science Institute, Japan) & Jon Mason (Charles Darwin University, Australia)

The tide of big data has come. Along the tide, various technologies and frameworks have been produced for this decade, and given huge impacts upon knowledge management. Types and feature of knowledge that organizations deal with and manage are changing. Former knowledge management focused on organizational rule, operation, and know-who and know-how, and set the importance of acquiring, sharing and delivering. Current knowledge management has to deal with knowledge having more situational aspect, more flexible, less stable and closer relation to strategy, and has functions of visualization, analysis and collaborative production. These functions break off the distance between knowledge management and learning in the workplace and educational institution. Contents for learning would be produced by these functions and also approach through these functions is learning itself.

For organizational and individual learning, there remain various issues in learning analytics (LA), Tore and Chen (2014) pointed following concerns out, (1) privacy, trust and control of data, (2) LA affordances and application domains, (3) LA context and learning activities, (4) legacy system interoperability – information model for LA data exchange, (5) LA implementation best practice guide. In this session, both conceptual and technological papers are welcome for solving above.
