Abstract. The International Workshop on Analytics on Video-based Learning (WAVe2013) aims to connect research efforts on Video-based Learning with Learning Analytics to create visionary ideas and foster synergies between the two fields. The main objective of WAVe is to build a research community around the topical area of Analytics on video-based learning. In particular, WAVe aims to develop a critical discussion about the next generation of analytics employed on video learning tools, the form of these analytics and the way they can be analyzed in order to help us to better understand and improve the value of video-based learning. WAVe is based on the rationale that combining and analyzing learners’ interactions with other available data obtained from learners, new avenues for research on video-based learning have emerged.
