The demands of new skill sets and tools to deal with the variety and velocity of data multiplying at an exponential rate may be part of the challenge. The integration of physical networked objects into learning design and research and meaningful use of learning analytics (LA) that can result may require new mindset and processes for those involved in education and training. For example, a learning action or path can be represented as a “smart” service and can be encapsulated by a software object that can be discovered and integrated into high‐level analysis and potentially leveraged for reflection and learning.
