Big data – large amounts of complex data and the way it’s captured, analysed and shared – is one of the major challenges facing many organisations in the 21st century.
The Digital Innovations in Healthcare and Education (DICE) Research Group carries out research that considers the importance that different types of data have in healthcare and education. Using semantic web techniques and tools, we’re turning complex data into accessible information and educational resources that enhance the knowledge and clinical practice of healthcare professionals.
Our research encompasses educational data and tailored information to improve personalised learning experiences. This evidence informs education programmes, curriculum changes and even policy guidelines.
An internal project of the DICE Research Group in collaboration with the HELM team aims to identify the role of learning analytics in students’ education.
