Importance in the World
As technology advances, the growth of student-generated data plays an increasingly significant role in understanding the complexity of activity in the learning environment.
Importance on Campus
Big data can come from a variety of sources - learning management systems, websites, social media are some examples. These data streams can ultimately be combined with administrative data to provide a broad view of students' and their experience on campus. Making sense out of these disparate data streams is what Big Data and analytics encompasses.
How can CITL help you with Big Data?
Our campus is committed to the continuous improvement of the student learning experience and the exploration of how Big Data can impact instruction and student progress. A goal within CITL is to partner with other campus stakeholders to collect, process, evaluate, and analyze ‘Big Data’ to deliver effective outcomes in teaching and learning.
