Abstract

The primary purpose of educators is to help people improve in some way. In a deep and overarching way, the second purpose of educators should be to improve our ability to educate. "Openness" and "learning analytics" are two of the buzzwords currently in vogue in educational technology. Independently, these two approaches can help educators make some headway toward improvement. When combined, however, these approaches enable continuous quality improvement on a scale never before imagined.
