  • 15. Differences today• Constructivist, immersive study easier since necessary computational resources and test data easily available• eLearning approaches (MOOC-style or not) can fit with Big Data infrastructures – tutor-student, peer-to-peer, historical collaborations all possible• Big Data can also support learning – Learning analytics allow tuning of teaching – Linked Data/Open Data enable discovery and use of available Open Educational Resources18.04.2013 15
  • 16. Final Thought• Imagine an open online Data Science Lab – Repository for available learning materials – Educationally significant datasets – Computational resources – Programming tools – Learning dialogues between educationalists, tutors and students18.04.2013 16
