The 10th Learning Analytics Conference (LAK20) took place from March 25-27, 2020. Due to the current corona pandemic, the anniversary edition took place entirely online for the first time in LAK history. It was organised by our colleagues in the "Educational Technology" department of the DIPF. 

On this occasion, we want to take a look at this still relatively new field of activity in educational research. Our dossier deals with the application of Learning Analytics (LA) in schools and Higher Education in Germany (in German) as well as with the international development of LA (Engl+Ger).

In our dossier you will find definitions, basics, literature tips, and further information on research projects, specialist societies, application areas, journals, conferences as well as critical thoughts related to the field of "Learning Analytics".

The coronavirus epidemic of 2020 has an impact on education worldwide, as Unesco reports.

Meanwhile, 850 million students (as of March 18th, 2020) cannot go to school due to school closures due to the corona virus. On its website, Unesco provides a world map showing in which countries schools are closed either nationwide or at a regional level.

In order to remedy this situation, Unesco recommends the use of distance learning and digital learning programmes and platforms. For this purpose, an extra page with lists of e-learning platforms, apps and more is provided.
