Abstract: This study explores the perspectives of distance learners about student-facing learning analytics. Nineteen middle-aged, white, online students answered eight forum questions about a hypothetical scenario of a student who struggles to balance work and study and who was given access to a learning analytics dashboard. The dashboard presented comparative performance and engagement information and personalised study recommendations. Findings showed that study recommendations were highly favoured by students whereas peer comparisons were mostly viewed as not useful and demotivating.
