Open University's Policy on Ethical use of Student Data for #LearningAnalytics

Interesting to see that the Open University has produced a few documents outlining its policy on ethical use of data that it collects about students' learning (e.g. all the information on which students has used what in a virtual learning environment or MOOC, student comments in discussion fora). They have a policy document, Policy on Ethical use of Student Data for Learning Analytics, an FAQ and a document aimed at the students' themselves, Using information to support student learning. This looks like a good development that others should follow.
