Big Data in education

Big data and Business Intelligence are introducing in education, how does it affect educational institutions, which is the strategy of industry.

Learning Analytics (LA) is a research area that brings together experts in very diverse subjects (educational technology, artificial intelligence, education, data mining or psychology, etc.) with managers, administrators, politicians and companies related to formal and > informal education. Making the most of the increasing amount of data students and teachers leave when they interact with learning technologies is one of its main goals. However, LA has also created high expectations about the possibility of adapting the student learning path, developing recommendation systems, personalized learning and formative assessment. In summary, there is an interesting debate about the impact of LA in education. Sponsored by the Society for Learning Analytics Research (SoLAR), the Learning Analytics Summer Institutes (LASI) have become established in the last two years as an awareness-raising, capacity-building, international network of events, where researchers and practitioners can meet to share their work, and envision the future. A number of activities are organized around the world in association to this conference. The “LASI-2015 Bilbao” International workshop is organized by the University of Deusto (UD) with the collaboration of SNOLA (Spanish Network of Learning Analytics) on June 22 and 23 at the campus of Bilbao.
