Abstract

This paper is a guest editorial into a special section that offers a collection of tutorials on methods that can be used in learning analytics. The special section is prepared as a response to the growing need of learning analytics practitioners and researchers to learn and use novel methods. In spite of this need, papers that systematically introduce some of the methods have been underrepresented in the literature. Specifically, the special section features papers that introduce epistemic network analysis, automated content and network analysis of social media, text coherence analysis with Coh-Metrix, microgenetic analysis with sequence pattern mining, and design of visual learning analytics guided by educational theory informed goals.This paper is a guest editorial into a special section that offers a collection of tutorials on methods that can be used in learning analytics.
