Abstract

Use of BIG DATA analytics in business is commonplace and is supporting the growth of industries throughout the world. A major source of BIG DATA is K-12 and higher education. Since 2004 several billion in funding has been used to create BIG DATA systems in education, but there has been limited success in the use of this data to improve educational outcomes of students in the K-12 and Higher Education systems. Why? A singular goal of business is to generate revenue and evidence from BIG DATA facilitates these efforts. Too often in education, goals/outcomes are based on philosophies, rather than scientific evidence from BIG DATA. The purpose of this session is to outline the challenges of BIG DATA in higher education and the impact of philosophies as covariates.
