So far, few have published clear definitions of learning data or guidelines for how students’ data can be used or shared. One exception is the University of California system, which has created a team to develop UC learning data privacy principles and recommended best practices for its campuses. The issues being addressed involve both student consent as well as university contractual relationships with third-party vendors.
