About the University of California

The University of California, Irvine is a driving force of innovation and discovery in educational technology and learning analytics. UCI is ranked in the top 10 of public institutions in the United States (currently number 7). Further, as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), hosting LAK at UCI will afford broader access to students and faculty that are currently under-represented within the LAK community. Such opportunities to ensure diversity in the LAK conference will benefit the Society for many years to come.

LAK21 Moves Online

Given the current realities of the global pandemic due to COVID-19, there continues to be uncertainty of international travel and mass gatherings for the foreseeable future. Taking these concerns into consideration, the LAK21 organizers and the Society for Learning Analytics Research have made the decision to host LAK21 fully online. SoLAR is making the decision at this time to enable planning specifically for this mode with the aim of creating an even more engaging and interactive conference program than the first virtual LAK. We hope to build on the success of LAK20 that was transitioned within 10 days from a hybrid event to a fully virtual event.
