I came across this infographic about Big Data in higher education today. I thought it was really interesting and fits well with the topics we discussed in class, so I figured I’d share it on our blog!
One thing that I found particularly intriguing about the graphic is at the bottom when it lists the pros and cons of using big data to help students generate schedules. It says that students might be directed to less challenging classes. This reminded me of our discussion about software that could help students meet the necessary requirements for their degree while maximizing their GPA.
