Keywords: MOOCs; Learning Analytics; Data Privacy; Big Data; Higher Education

Abstract: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), as a new educational trend, attract worldwide a huge number of learners giving them appropriate knowledge according to personal needs. Therefore, during participating in Massive Open Online Courses a wide variety of students' personal and activity data are collected and used for different purposes by tutors, hosting platforms and possible third party actors, such as universities or companies. Part of this big data is processed by the Learning Analytics modules, in order to understand and optimize the learning process. The questions that arise are: - What kind of students' private data are shared and why? - What are the privacy models provided by MOOCs? - What data is needed for Learning Analytics modules? - Are there any third party actors processing the students' data and why? The analysis, model and conclusions indicate the positive features and bandgaps in the area of data privacy in the context of MOOCs.
