Abstract

The rapid development of Information technology has brought the era of Big Data, a buzzword now familiar among most people, which has generated a huge influence on human social lives including politics, economics, culture and so on, which has also transformed the education. With various online courses emerging at different kinds of websites, huge volumes of data of learners has been generated, from attendance rates to test scores, to track the learners comprehensively. Now, by Learning Analytics technology, many educational institutions use these data to analyze students' interests, performance and behavioral issues and then make a personalized plan accordingly, promoting the development of individual education. In China, little research has been done between Big Data and individual education, so this paper aims to show the opportunities and challenges created by the Big Data, put forward some coping strategies when facing the challenges and provide a reference for the other researchers to make a further study.
