Looking at the content of the titles of these most popular videos, we may find hints about what the most popular topics in data mining among the viewers of videolectures.net. Most Popular Data Mining Lectures Title Words Based on this visualization, it seems lectures on MapReduce and Web Mining strike a chord with data mining lecture viewers.

One interesting facet of the data to look at is the length of the video compared to the number of views on the video. Below is a scatter plot mapping the rank of the video against its length.

Data Mining Lectures Length vs. Views

There is a slight inverse correlation between the length of the video and its rank in views. The three major outliers to this general trend are Large-scale Data Mining: MapReduce and Beyond (10), Data Mining (12), and Introduction to Graphical Models for Data Mining (13). This means that, when it comes to data mining lectures, deeper content-filled lectures can be very popular, even if they take more time to develop.

Data Mining Lectures Length vs. Popularity

Note that this only applies if we sort by the number of views. If we take the videos in the order sorted by videolectures.net’s popularity metric, there is no clear correlation between length and popularity. This is because the criteria for a “popular” video as defined by videolectures.net account for more factors than simply the number of views, potentially including features like votes and publishing date.
