About the Conference

Welcome to the official web site for the 5th International Learning Analytics and Knowledge (LAK) Conference! The theme for this year's conference, Scaling Up: Big Data to Big Impact, reflects our growing community of researchers, practitioners, and learners and our success in leveraging the power of "big data" to create substantial impact within higher education and learning at increasingly larger scale. Join us in Poughkeepsie, New York (USA) at Marist College in the historic Hudson Valley as we network, learn and celebrate our accomplishments.

Learning Analytics continues to build recognition within international governments as an important next step in the future of education and retention, reports such as the US Department of Education's Issue Brief and the White Paper written for the Australian Government's Office for Learning and Teaching. LAK15 will keep up the momentum generated in earlier conferences as we continue to define who we are as a community and how our research can impact the important decisions facing education today.

If you have any questions or would like to learn more, please contact us at lak15@marist.edu. We are looking forward to seeing you in Poughkeepsie!
