The initial investigations supported the use of custom build framework for teaching online courses. Data Structure course was taught using online platform and the data was collected using the log files. The data collected was further analysed using data mining techniques using Rapid miner tool. Although the results from three different data mining techniques showed some variations but the inferences from the results identified few common factors that have influence on enhancing the online learning usage model. Clustering techniques revealed that factors related to timely checking of online contents and posting have positive impact on online learning however decision trees supported that timely completing the online assignments along with checking of online contents and posting of messages played an important role in terms of enhancing the academic performance. This paper identifies three factors for teachers teaching online courses to improve overall performance of the students by learning from Indian University Success.
