Predictive analytics will grow in significance in terms of student retention and learner support. I did a double take when I read this, since I thought we were done with analytics, but the author assumed (I guess) that we need a whole second class of analytics, this time to predict what students will do. Where analytics will be really useful in learning is in the as-yet largely unremarked environment of personal knowledge networks and feedback mechanisms.
