Web Usage Mining Techniques to Improve the Capabilities of E-learning Websites and Blogs

SUNIL ., Prof. M. N. Doja .


The current scenario of advanced technologies and rapid development of internet and its efficiency learners prefer online learning. A new way of education system is created with the rapid growth of internet and learners realize their E-learning activities with less effort, time and money. Now days internet is most important media for the collection, distribution and sharing of information. E-learning is the area where web-based technologies have been rapidly and effectively adopted. By using various data mining techniques the transformation and interpretation of web data is done to find out the various hidden patterns and information which results in enhancing E-learning environment. For the E-learning environment web usage mining is used to mine the server logs to find the learners’ usage pattern so that the learners can be provided with an efficient platform and more personalized services. The paper introduces the use of web usage mining techniques that makes the E-learning environment more competent and effective. With the use of web usage mining techniques the websites and blogs must be designed such a way that it satisfies the needs of the learners and provide more effective learning environment. The maintaining and restructuring of websites and blogs which in turn helps developers to increase the visits of current learners and promote interest of learners also attracts new ones.
