Sensors are ubiquitous. Any action mediated by technology can be tracked to an
increasing level of detail. Learning is no exception. In a learning scenario, there
are numerous interactions that may occur mediated by technology. If this is the
case, there is a wealth of sensor data available to store, process and use to act
or intervene in the learning environment. In this talk the potential for learning
analytics as well as some of its drawbacks will be discussed.
