Learning analytics (LA) provides data-driven feedback that aims to improve learning and inform action. For learners, LA-based feedback may scaffold self-regulated learning skills, which are crucial to learning success. For teachers, LA-based feedback may help the evaluation of teaching effects and the need for interventions. However, the current development of LA has presented problems related to the cognitive, social-affective, and structural dimensions of feedback. In light of this, this position paper argues that attention needs to shift from the design of LA as a feedback product to one that facilitates a process in which both teachers and students play active roles in meaning-making. To this end, implications for feedback literacy in the context of LA are discussed.
