Abstract

Despite the great success of data mining being applied for personalization in web environments, it has not yet been massively applied in the e-learning domains. In this paper, we outline a web usage mining project which has been initiated in University of Cantabria. The aim of this project is to develop tools which let us improve its Web-based learning environment in two main aspects: the first that the teacher obtains information which allows him to evaluate the learning process and the second that the student feels supported in this task.
