Abstract

Within a traditional classroom, teachers easily discover their students in terms of knowledge, motivation or learning style, and can further exploit this knowledge to adapt or optimize their instructions. This task becomes nearly impossible in computer-mediated learning systems, since the observation and evaluation of a learning session are based on the analysis of a large amount of attention metadata. Active researches are being led to automate analysis of such data: the big idea resides in the production of indicators that are relevant when one comes to study learners’ behavior. After highlighting weaknesses of existing approaches, this paper introduces a framework able to easily specify, compute and share simple or complex indicators. Our approach stands on both a generic model to clearly define indicators and their values, together with a publication/subscribtion architecture responsible for calculation and delivery of these data.
