The rapid growth of educational data mining (EDM) is an emerging field in the academic world of research and studies focusing on collection, archiving, and analysis of data related to delivery methodology, quality of materials and student learning and assessment. The information analyzed informs the learning institution on how to improve learning experiences and how to run the institutional effectively. The people responsible for making decisions in the learning institution will able to make informed data-driven decisions. This paper explores the value of the Internet of Things (IoT) in capturing and mastering massive data for online courses to assess and identify typical learning scenarios for learners. We hope this would be a useful instrumental tool for the range of approaches in education institutions to help their struggling learners to succeed in the academic field.
