Abstract

Taiwan's Ministry of Education (MoE) started planning and promoting comprehensive Digital Learning Initiative in 2013. It is expected that teachers and students can use broadband networks in campus in 2017. Students can do online learning with different kinds of digital devices at any time. Besides, students can do ubiquitous learning by getting digital learning resources on cloud devices. Teachers can grasp innovative teaching strategies with the application of digital technology and design the learning activities that are more adaptive to individual students. Students have the information force of mobile learning, the abilities to use information tools and grasp the information, as well as Internet literacy and ethics. The learning model of education at all levels will transform into student-centered to facilitate justice, public, autonomy and adaptive learning opportunities as well as make students in the country and those in the city have equal digital learning opportunities. Digital Learning Initiative will have profound influence on education system. Education cloud (EduCloud) is the flagship of the digital learning initiative. This paper presents our research and experience of applying Big data analytics to the EduCloud. We address Big data infrastructure and analytics to cover the issues of data collection, cleaning, storage, query, analytics, and visualization in order to make EduCloud more suitable for teachers and students in Taiwan.
