As part of LAK 2018, the Eighth International Learning Analytics and Knowledge Conference, we are thrilled to announce the second Multimodal Learning Analytics Across (Physical and Digital) Spaces (CrossMMLA) workshop. Student’s learning happens where the learner is rather than being constrained to a single physical or digital environment. Educational research has revealed the pedagogical benefits of letting students experience different types of content, ”real world” challenges, and physical and social interactions with educators or other learners. In this way, students commonly work outside the boundaries of the institutional learning system(s). This inherently blended nature of learning settings makes it essential to move beyond learning analytics that rely solely on a single data source (e.g. log files).
