The HUB of Analytics Education provides Open Educational Resources (OER) to faculty in Higher Education around the globe. These materials were developed by faculty members, Executive Professor Dr. Charlie Bame-Aldred and Lecturer William Goldman, from the D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University. Our mission is to provide free materials that assist faculty when implementing Big Data techniques in their curriculum.

Various materials are provided to assist in incorporating the different datasets within a curriculum. These materials include large transactional datasets with supporting information and cases and exercises with Suggested Solutions and Teaching Notes for Auditing (ACL or IDEA based activities) and Management Accounting (Tableau based activities). 

  • Student Tutorial Video series designed to assist students in the simple tasks within Tableau, ACL, and IDEA and provide guidance in completing the cases and exercises on the Bibitor, LLC Data from the HUB. All videos are ADA Compliant. You can find these videos on our YouTube channel. 
  • Classroom Support on our Tableau and IDEA software page provides instructions to integrate and implement the Data within a curriculum, obtain educator and student licenses and access Tableau and IDEA extended Online Training Videos. 
  • There are articles from practitioners and academics. These articles were used in our classrooms to assist students in understanding the current issues around Big Data Analytics.
