Data analysis and data mining techniques are recognized as important disciplines that deliver 'Sophisticated domain knowledge'. The Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE-Computer Society suggest in the 2013 draft Computer Science curricula, Data Mining as an elective course and an important course topic in previous Information Systems or Information Technology curricula. In this paper, the authors report a four year teaching experience in an Information Systems course for students in Management Engineering in which basic Data Mining techniques were taught as part of the course. The experience led to the design of an e-learning web platform, based on Matlab which is useful for data mining studies.
