INTRODUCTION TO LEARNING ANALYTICS ADOPTION IN HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS
Educational data mining and Learning analytics represent a pair of research disciplines, which cover the majority of these data mining techniques, methods, applications as well as data mining tools in the area of education. The main aim of the paper is to summarize the main characteristics of Learning Analytics and focus on the approaches and frameworks used for its successful adoption and implementation of the environment of higher educational institutions.
