Hi folks,

Yesterday P2PU  hosted an unHangout on research and learning analytics, and
the challenges of using big data in social science research.

Really interesting insights from the panel, and it was good to see that
MOOCs and other open learning environments are increasingly giving due
consideration to the ethical and privacy challenges of using learner's
personal data by default in research that is then shared openly, as
highlighted in this paper (http://queue.acm.org/detail.cfm?id=2661641)
