In recent years, there has been a radical change in the world of teaching and training. This is causing numerous schools, universities and companies to adopt the most modern Information and Communication Technologies, mainly based on the Web, for distance education. Moreover, the widespread use of web-based environments is producing a considerable volume of data which could be used to monitor the learning processes to improve them. While Educational Data Mining analyzes this data from a technical point of view, Learning Analytics focuses on educational aspects to optimize online learning opportunities, involving all the stakeholders. In this paper, we present a case study concerning the analysis of data generated by a learning process, in a Learning Management System (LMS). The main goal is to test a particular Business Intelligence platform, the Knime platform, to extract hidden significant educational features from data. The case study strengthens our approach, with interesting pedagogical results.
