Ike Chuang & Dan Seaton - Research with MITx data

" "
The MITx program has generated a tremendous amount of data, both on edX and residentially at MIT.  From the 14 MITx on edX courses, there are over 500 million records of events coming from over 600 thousand students; from the 23 residential MITx courses, we have records from over 2,700 student interactions.  This data is a tremendous resource for understanding learning and improving courses.  We describe what data is available, how to obtain access, within bounds set by FERPA, and illustrate some of the richness and potential of the data.
