Abstract


Nowadays, a new form of learning has emerged in higher education. This is e-Learning. Lessons are taught on a Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS). These platforms generate a large variety of data at very high speed. This massive data comes from the interactions between the system and the users and between the users themselves (Learners, Tutors, Teachers, administrative Agents). Since 2013, UVS (Virtual University of Senegal), a digital university that offers distance learning through Moodle and Blackboard Collaborate platforms, has emerged. In terms of statistics, it has 29340 students, more than 400 active Tutors and 1000 courses. As a result, a large volume of data is generated on its learning platforms. In this article, we have set up an architecture allowing us to execute all types of queries on all data from platforms (historical data and real-time data) in order to set up intelligent systems capable of improving learning in this university. We then set up a machine learning model as a use case which is based on multiple regression in order to predict the most influential learning objects on the learners' final mark according to his learning activities.
