Abstract

This chapter describes MOOC on educational data mining (EDM)/learning analytics, Big Data in education (referred to later as BDEMOOC in some cases). It also describes BDEMOOC's goals, its design and pedagogy, its content, and the research it afforded. Big Data in education was offered in its first version on the Coursera platform as one of the inaugural courses offered by Columbia University. BDEMOOC's first iteration began on October 24, 2013. It officially ended on December 26, 2013, but the course remained open after that point. The second iteration of BDEMOOC had assignments developed in cognitive tutor authoring tools (CTAT). CTAT supports the rapid authoring of intelligent tutoring system activities that offer a step-by-step guidance for complex problem-solving activities. Like CTAT, Bazaar was integrated into the edX platform. BDEMOOC has supported a number of research projects, making it one of the more thoroughly studied MOOCs.
