Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) in online educational system through LON-CAPA system

Prof. Darshana Kishorbhai Dave, Prof. Preeti Kishorbhai Dave


In this paper we give a definition of KDD and Data Mining, describing its tasks, methods, and applications. Our motivation in this study is gaining the best technique for extracting useful information from large amounts of data in an online educational system, in general, and from the LON-CAPA system, in particular. The goals for this study are: to obtain an optimal predictive model for students within such systems, help students use the learning resources better, based on the usage of the resource by other students in their groups, help instructors design their curricula more effectively, and provide the information that can be usefully applied by instructors to increase student learning.
