Several Universitat Oberta de Catalunya professors and researchers will analyze next wednesday the different ways to measure the behavior of the students when they interact in a digital environment like the UOC campus. Data mining, the process of analyzing large amounts of data from an on line application, is a usefull tool to measure the students behavior and take important decisions based on the obtained conclusions.
During the conference, organized by the UOC UNESCO Chair in E-Learning, different professors and marketing specialists will present nine research projects: from the analysis of the students roles to the research on the UOC degrees value and the profile of the different graduates.
Later, we will have a chance to hear to Dr. Sebastián Ventura, head of the director of the Numerical Analysis department at the Universidad de Córdoba (Spain) and author/coordinator of the book Data Mining in E-Learning (published by WIT Press on 2006).
