Expanding Evidence Approaches for Learning in a Digital World - Big Data
The US DOE has very recently provided a draft report (and are asking for comment) titled The report discusses the promise of sophisticated digital learning systems for collecting and analyzing very large amounts of fine-grained data (“big data”) as users interact with the systems.
The draft report describes Big Data as a dataset or collection of datasets so large and complex that standard data management tools perform analyses and other tasks such as capturing, storing, searching, sharing, and visualizing information.
