Abstract -
Educational Data Mining is an emerging discipline, concerned with developing methods for exploring the unique types of data that come from educational settings, and using those methods to better understand students, and the settings which they learn in.Currently there is very much interest in data mining and educational systems, making educational data mining as a new growing research community. This paper surveys the application of data mining to web-based courses and adaptive and intelligent web-based educational systems. Each of these systems has different data source and objectives for knowledge discovering. After preprocessing the available data in each case, different data mining techniques can be applied.
