This presentation explores shortcomings of learning analytics for the wide adoption in educational organisations. It is NOT about ethics and privacy rather than focuses on shortcomings of learning analytics for teachers and students in the classroom (micro-level). We investigated if and to what extend learning analytics dashboards are addressing educational concepts. Map opportunities and challenges for the use of Learning Analytics dashboards for the design of courses, and present an evaluation instrument for the effects of Learning Analytics called EFLA. EFLA can be used to measure the effects of LA tools at the teacher and student side. It is a robust but light (8 items) measurement to quickly investigate the level of adoption of learning analytics in a course (micro-level). The presentation concludes that Learning Analytics is still to much a computer science dicipline that does not fulfill the often claimed position of the middle space between educational and computer science research.
