How Universities are Using Data to Transform Education

Presented by

Hortonworks and Microsoft

About this talk

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”.
