Big Data cannot be processed through any traditional application software because there are tools like Hadoop and platforms like cloud based technologies to mine large amounts of data. The analytics provide organizations with an efficient way to stay agile in their business.
With Hadoop, which has in-memory analytics, organizations can take faster and better decisions because Hadoop has the ability to analyze various sources of data and then businesses are able to process this information immediately. New products and services can be produced with the help of analytics by studying the customer’s needs. More and more companies are now paying attention to these needs by creating services to satisfy the customer.
Student’s behavior, examination results and development of each student as well as the education needs based on the changing educational requirements, can be processed through statistical analysis. Big Data paves the way for revolutionary system where students will learn in exciting ways.
Let us have a look at some of the fields in Education Sector which will be highly impacted due to Big Data:
Each student generates a unique data trail during his or her lifetime, which can be analyzed for better understanding of a student’s behavior to create the best possible learning environment. Big data analytics monitors student’s activity such as their favorite subjects, their classroom performance, curricular activity interests, time they take to finish an exam and many other things within a student’s educational environment. A report can be constructed which will indicate the interest areas of a student.
Multiple programs can be fostered which will encourage each individual to choose what they desire to learn and through this many reports can be generated in the life of a student and what they would like to do or be in the future. Educators can improve their teaching skills after receiving feedback for a better learning experience equally for all students.
