    In the era of big amounts of new data, the need arises to reconsider the role of higher education institutions and institutional policies in relation to privacy, data control and trust. It is then important to gain better insight into the context of this new way of analysis and thus contribute to the process of building an agenda about data ethics and privacy. Considering these, in this paper we are interested in discussing and putting forward our position regarding context integrity in learning analytics. To do so, we will discuss the elements of context integrity in relation to the type of research conducted online and emerging challenges.
