With a variety of datasets at our disposal, being able to use data to answer questions and gain insight into learner behaviour is a valuable tool in both research and applied practice.

Directly studying the effects of these artefacts is often very difficult, and data science offers methods of finding out “what actually happened” from the data, allowing developers and designers the opportunity to improve the use of technology, and aid students in their learning goals. This  Applied Data Science for Learning Environments short course is offered by  University of Birmingham online .
