Learning analytics is now moving from being a research interest to topic for adoption. As this happens, the challenge of efficiently and reliably moving data between systems becomes of vital practical importance. In this context, “scalable learning analytics” is not intended to refer to infrastructural throughput, but to refer to the feasibility of a combination of: a) pervasive system integration, and b) efficient analytical and data management practices. There are a number of considerations that are of particular relevance to learning analytics in addition to elements that are generic to analytics. This contribution to EUNIS 2015 seeks to clarify, by argument and through evidence, both where there are potential benefits and limitations to applying interoperability specifications (and standards) in the service of scalable learning analytics.
