Atezaz Ahmad is a research assistant and doctoral candidate within the Leibniz Institute for Educational Research and Information and Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. His PhD thesis is about learning analytics indicators and dashboards, where he is working, developing and evaluating a LA tool called OpenLAIR that helps course designers, teachers, students, and educational researchers to make informed decisions about the selection of learning design activities, LA indicators, and metrics for their course design or LA dashboard. He is further working on NLP to automize the process of harvesting LA indicators and their metrics from the LA literature and uploading them to OpenLAIR to keep the tool up to date. He graduated with a master's in Software System Engineering in the field of learning analytics from RWTH Aachen University, Germany.
