In the context of data mining the feature size is very large and it is believed that it needs a bigger population. Hence, this translates directly into higher computational load. With the huge amount of information available online, the web mining is a fertile area of research which applies the data mining techniques. It relates to several research communities such as Database, Information Retrieval and Visualization. The authors have categorized web data mining into threes areas; web content mining, web structure mining and web usage mining. In this research area that is receiving increasing attention from the data mining community. In this paper, they discuss some data mining techniques that could be used to enhance web-based learning environments.
