Educational Data Mining and Learning Analytics


In recent years, two communities have grown around a joint interest in how big data can be exploited to benefit education and the science of learning: Educational Data Mining and Learning Analytics.

The article discusses how these methods emerged in the early days of research in this area, which methods have seen particular interest in the EDM and learning analytics communities, and how this has changed as the field matures and has moved to making significant contributions to both educa- tional research and practice.
