Take home message Linked Data is essential to Learning Analytics: provides a flexible, reusable source of information for all the steps of the analytics process Still some efforts to make for a complete understanding by the Learning Analytics community of the benefits of adopting (and learning) linked data But, through various channels, will soon become standard practice 10.
