Higher Education's Big (Data) Bang: Part Two - eCampus News

Higher Education's Big (Data) Bang: Part Two - eCampus News | Analytics for Learning & Teaching | Scoop.it

This second part in an eCampus News series about the power and pitfalls of Big Data examines the criticism and skepticism surrounding the buzz words.

 

A university recently crunched all of the “Big Data” it had gathered on a course and made a surprising discovery.

 

Out of the two professors who taught the course, one had significantly lower performing students. But this was a professor who had won several teaching awards and was well-respected by campus leaders.

What was going on here, the researchers wondered as they sifted through all of the data points at their disposal.

They could only draw one conclusion based on the data at hand: the poorer student performance was because the professor was not the level of teacher everyone believed him to be.

 

The conclusion, it turns out, was wrong.

Designing for Learning's insight:

In this paper, Social Learning Graphs are presented as a framework to capture and represent the interactions and relations occurring among multiple entities in a learning environment.


The advantage of this representation is that it combines structural information with observations in a common graph notation suitable to be used by procedures such as link–prediction, recommendation, and abstractions.
