The Data Mining conference yesterday was very interesting. The different projects presented by the UOC staff (thanks a lot to everyone) allowed us to have a panoramic view of the advantages of analyzing all the data obtained on a digital environment.
From a very marketing oriented point of view (why do some students quit their careers?, how is their perception of the university?) to the other extreme, the technical one, all the initiatives are very usefull when we want to understand the student’s behavior.
For all those ones that couldn’t go to the conference and of course for all of the assistants, we have compiled most of the presentations and uploaded it to Slideshare.net. The rest of them will come very soon, but meanwhile you can see and download 7 of 10.
I’d like to feature one special presentation. It was made by Dr. Enric Mor, who has recently defended his PhD dissertation. It’s writen in catalan and summarizes some of the conclussions he presented on his doctoral thesis:

How can we measure the students behavior in a digital environment?
