The MOOCdb Project

Advancing MOOC data science through collaborative frameworks

The MOOCdb project aims to brings together education researchers, computer science researchers, machine learning researchers, technologists, database and big data experts to advance MOOC data science. The project founded at MIT includes a platform agnostic functional data model for data exhaust from MOOCs, a collaborative-open source-open access data visualization framework, a crowd sourced knowledge discovery framework and a privacy preserving software framework. The team is currently working to release a number of these tools and frameworks as open source.
