Big data has impacted many sectors like manufacturing, healthcare, media, Internet of Things (IoT), and more. Today I will be focusing upon the influence of Big Data on the education sector. Education is a core sector where data plays a significant role, and now with Big Data, the classrooms have evolved to much greater heights.
