But it is found that educational system are notoriously poor in managing the data and taking advantage of this generated data. There are two research area for Big Data mining in education called educational data mining and learning analytics. Educational data mining is suit for the computational and psychological methods and research approach for the understanding how student learn, predict student future learning behaviour. Learning analytics is becoming defined as an area of research and application and is related to academic analytics actions and predication analytics. Recently waste amount of work has been done in other area like ecommerce portal and increase the click through rate. So now considering opportunities with data generate by the online learning platform we can mine the education data for calculating learner performance interest problem face by the learner knowledge level for different knowledge point. As recently there are lot of research in education data mining and some researcher started treating data in education system as big data problem, we have done survey of various research in education.
