Online teaching activities based on increasingly used computer-based educational systems lacks standard rules for its implementation. This paper describes the design of online training activities using Moodle as a Learning Management System (LMS) and, evaluate short-term and long-term students’ learning outcomes applying data mining techniques. Clustering and classification algorithms are combined to uncover valuable, non-obvious students’ patterns from a well-defined collection of data. Data results from online quiz-based activities in a subject of Computer Science show that students who are not engaged in the training activity during the short-term learning process fail. Data analysis also shows that the number of trials is a key attribute. Hence, it is important to develop user-friendly online activities with real-time feedback based on student behaviour. Moreover, according to our experiment, online training activities decrease in efficiency over time..


Keywords –higher education, Learning Management System, Data Mining, students’ behaviour, students’ outcomes.
