[Infografía] Big Data and Higher Education

[Infografía] Big Data and Higher Education | Big Data and Analytics | Scoop.it

More than 6.7 million students took an online course in 2011…were you one of them? Education and Skills 2.0: New Targets and Innovative Approaches , a new book from the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Education and Skills , says that at scale, higher education’s migration to online will redefine what it means to provide a great education to students.

 

The availability of user interaction data is a game changer in online education. By measuring the time a student spends on a module or question, professors can assess how well an assignment performs for any one subgroup of students and identify areas of difficulty for a class or individual learner. Technology-focused degrees like data science programs take place on the web itself, allowing graduates to gain a comfort level with the space they will be working in every day. This ability to improve the student learning experience in real-time is unprecedented in the higher education field.

 

In this infographic, datascience@berkeley and the Global Agenda Council have teamed up to paint a picture of the higher education online landscape — including the benefits of online education, inherent barriers, and key players in the space today. The confluence of big data and higher education represents a permanent change to the learning landscape, one from which students, faculty, and entire areas of study will benefit. Take a moment to learn a little more about this academic revolution

Marketing Engineering? Marketing Engineering!, and the Top 9 Marketing Technology Articles Curated Thursday, 7/24/14

Marketing Engineering? Marketing Engineering!, and the Top 9 Marketing Technology Articles Curated Thursday, 7/24/14 | Big Data and Analytics | Scoop.it

Engineering:

The work of designing and creating…new products or systems by using scientific methods.

Merriam-Webster.com

 

A few days ago, Scott Brinker in a MarketingLand article referenced the term “marketing engineering” which immediately piqued my interest. It was in reference to the growing use of technology to overhaul marketing processes that drives greater business efficacy, i.e., more opportunities, more revenue, more customers.

 

Is there such a thing as marketing engineering? Are we at a point today where the marketing discipline can be referred to as engineering?

 

Mechanical, Civil, Chemical, etc. Engineers would scoff at the notion. After all, there are college degrees proffered in those disciplines, not to mention professional societies with professional testing to achieve professionally certified degrees.

 

But take a look at the Merriam-Webster definition: the operative word is “scientific.” Is science used as a part of a Concrete Engineer’s profession? Absolutely: a knowledge of the components to concrete plus math (pour rate, etc.) points to the use of science to create something new.

 

Is math and science used as a part of a Software Engineer’s bag of tricks? Math is, and it is absolutely a requirement as a part of the effort to meet a Software Engineering degree. But science (knowledge about or study of the natural world based on facts learned through experiments and observation, also known as the scientific method)?

 

To answer that question, I’m drawn to the world of mechanical engineering, which is probably the closest discipline to software engineering where I can find common ground. If ME is acceptable (where machines designed and tested using math, testing and observation), then I have to think that the design of code to create output using math and the scientific method allows us to accept the term software engineering.

 

So if marketing technology involves the design and use of new processes through math and the scientific method, then I’m starting to feel real comfortable with the term “marketing engineering.”

 

But it requires a definition and far more structure. More on this tomorrow.
