Abstract

Analytics is a field of research and practice that aims to reveal new patterns of information through the collection of large sets of data held in previously distinct sources. Growing interest in data and analytics in education, teaching, and learning raises the priority for increased, high-quality research into the models, methods, technologies, and impact of analytics. The challenges of applying analytics on academic and ethical reliability to control over data. The other challenge is that the educational landscape is extremely turbulent at present, and key challenge is the appropriate collection, protection and use of large data sets. This paper brings out challenges of multi various pertaining to the domain by offering a big data model for higher education system.
