Currently, modern social technologies used by hundreds of millions of users are attractive and interesting and available free of charge. The article discusses the possibility of using social networks to improve e-education at higher education institutions. Considering a large amount of information disseminated by university students in the social network, the article proposes the use of data clustering methods - k-means to personalize the content of educational materials. The results of the research can be used by teachers and instructors of higher educational institutions to improve the content of e-course and to personalize e-education (pp.27-34).

Keywords: social network, e-education, personalized learning content, clustering methods.
