On a first cursory glance, compared to the data mining lectures, it is clear that the big data lectures tend to have far fewer views (741.56 views on average vs. 2972.44).

Now we will look at the contents of the titles of the lectures to try to glean information about what makes for a popular big data lecture.

Big Data Lecture Titles

It seems that when it comes to big data lectures, the web and streaming data are very popular common topics.

Now we will look at how the length of the lecture relates to its view count. We exclude the number 1 lecture because it is substantially more viewed than all of the other lectures.

Big Data lectures views vs. length

Like with the data mining lectures, there is a slight correlation between longer videos and more views, possibly indicating that well thought-out and thorough lectures are more desirable than shallow ones.

Unlike the data mining lectures, videolectures’s popularity metric follows a similar correlation to the views.
