Abstract: The paper presents LOCO-Analyst, an educational tool for providing teachers with fine-grained and context-rich feedback. Such an advanced feedback enables teachers to rethink the content and structure of their courses and helps them customise the courses to the students| needs. The feedback provision is based on analysis of learning context data captured and integrated from online learning systems and tools. Here, we illustrate some of the functionalities of LOCO-Analyst (using real world data) and present the semantic technologies that make LOCO-Analyst a generic feedback provisioning tool. We also sketch our current and planned future efforts for further improving LOCO-Analyst.
