This paper describes a design of sensor network for learning activities monitoring. Recent technological advances in sensors, low-power integrated circuits, and wireless communications have enabled the design of low cost, miniature, lightweight, and multimodal intelligent sensor networks. The paper presents a system architecture and hardware organization. With this sensor network for monitoring learning activities, teacher or parents could monitor or analyze learners’ activities for better learning.
