Stakeholders’ buy-in is fundamental for the successful implementation of Learning Analytics (LA) in Higher Education. We present the results of a survey in a Brazilian HEI, to investigate the ideal and realistic expectations of students and instructors about the adoption of LA. Results indicate a high interest in using LA for improving the learning experience, but with ideal expectations higher than realistic expectations, and point out key challenges and opportunities for Latin American researchers to join efforts towards building solid evidence that can inform educational policy-makers and managers, and support the development of strategies for LA services in the region.
