The goal of the project is to build a recommendation system that can aid instructors in improving their teaching and student according to the class requirements using sentiment analysis. Network analytics techniques have been used in the past to address social media issues; we hope to apply some of these techniques to help identify influencers in a learning system using key parameters identified in the educational literature. The amount of data in this space is increasing on a daily basis, we will further apply big data analytics techniques to improve the performance of our results.
