A New MOOCs’ Recommendation Framework based on LinkedIn Data
We propose a new framework for recommending Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to lifelong learners. Our approach can be summarized in two steps: (1) recommending MOOCs to potential learners according to their curricular information by relying on their LinkedIn profiles, and (2) recommending topics of interest to MOOCs’ providers by considering the job market needs. We also provide some insights about MOOCs of our Coursera dataset, thus to be taken into account during the decision process.
