According to Wikipedia, “‘Big data’ is a term applied to data sets whose size is beyond the ability of commonly used software tools to capture, manage, and process the data within a tolerable elapsed time. Big data sizes are a constantly moving target, as of 2012 ranging from a few dozen terabytes to many petabytes of data in a single data set.”

Higher education is just beginning to explore how to leverage the massive amounts of data it collects to improve the student experience.
