Educational Data Mining To Improve The Academic Performance in Higher Education
Globalization and Innovation are mainly consider the great interest public sector and private business in the world especially in the higher education institutions. Educational Data Mining is mainly one of the business processes nowadays that attempt to bring the global innovation through improving and enhancing their processes and procedures to fulfill all the requirements and needs of the students as well as the institutions. The Educational Data Mining considered mostly concern with any research concerning the applications of the data mining and developing innovative techniques for data mining (DM) in the educational sector. This study mainly combined the use of the powerful online E-learning management system (Moodle) with data mining tools to improve the performance and effectiveness of the learning and teaching manners by using the innovative daily data that collected from the educational institutions.
