Abstract

This study provides an overview of the educational big data research project at Kyushu University, Japan. This project uses an e-book system called BookLooper, which allows students to browse e-books on web browsers, PCs (personal computers), and mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs. This study reveals the research issues of this project. As of December 2015, approximately 20,000 students and 10,000 faculty staffs use the e-book system, and more than 4.7 million log data have been accumulated.
