«The Spanish Network of Learning Analytics (SNOLA): achievements and challenges»




Alejandra Martínez Monés


Learning analytics as a research field has been strongly supported by networks of researchers. At an international level, the Society for Learning Analytics Research, (SOLAR, http://solar.org) plays a fundamental role in the promotion and development of this area. In our country, this labour is being carried out by the Spanish Network of Learning Analytics (SNOLA, http://snola.es). In this talk, I will present the history and development of this network since its foundation in 2003, as well as the research lines of its components, and the main challenges that the field has to face in the next years, from the point of view of its members. Although SNOLA does not cover all the activity related to LA in Spain, this overview of the activity of the network and the visions of its participants will provide a representative vision of the state of research related with LA in Spain and the challenges for the future.
