The increasing amount of data being generated from learning environments provides new opportunities to support learning, education and training (LET) in a number of new ways through learning analytics. International organizations and societies, such as ISO/IEC JTC1 SC36 (Information Technology for Learning, Education and Training), IMS Global Learning Consortium, LACE (Learning Analytics Community Exchange) project, and SoLAR (Society of Learning Analytics Research), have conducted research and development emerging technologies and educational models related to learning analytics. Thanks to efforts of global communities data APIs for learning analytics almost reach matured stage, but there is still concern learning analytics model and scale of the services.

KERIS and organizers, as the first event in Asia region for LASI (Learning Analytics Summer Institute) Local, are proud to put together global efforts at the LASI-Asia conference and exhibition program. Through many sessions of conference and workshop at the exhibition hall participants will explore learning analytics in terms of what kinds of achievements from global efforts and how much come close to us. This event is free and open to public though registration spaces are limited.
