Unleash the Power of Big Data: How Universities Are Using Data to Transform Education

Recorded on December 8th, 2016

Is your University taking advantage of Big Data to improve student performance and raise professor effectiveness, while reducing administrative workloads?

Student performance data is increasingly being captured as part of software-based and online classroom exercises and testing. This data can be augmented with behavioral data captured from sources such as social media, student-professor meeting notes, blogs, student surveys, and so forth to discover new insights to improve student learning. The results transcend traditional IT departments to focus on issues like retention, research, and the delivery of content and courses through new modalities.

Hortonworks is partnering with Microsoft to show you how the Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) running on the Microsoft stack enables you to develop a “single view of a student”.

In addition, we will review a use case of how HDP is used in Genomic Research to analyze data and develop actionable insights from the analysis.

Mike Christensen and Brian Hagan from Hortonworks will share their insights with you. Learn how you can:

  • store and process huge amounts of data
  • make that data and tools accessible to others within and outside of the university
  • do it all cost effectively as data grows exponentially
  • teach hands on application analytics using actual clusters
