============================== ====================

In recent years, the information-rich education is progressing rapidly with technologies such as digital textbooks, LMS (Learning Management system) and e- portfolio systems. This has initiated both domestic and international research work to integrate the learning log data stored in these different systems and build education big data as an attempt to support teaching-learning. In this symposium, we introduce the latest research trends in analysis of Educational Big Data and Learning Analytics.

You are invited to participate in the symposium and attend the keynote speeches, case-study session and the panel discussion.
