Making eLearning Smarter with Emotion Recognition Software

Heerlen (NL), May 2018 - We have known for a long time that emotions have a strong influence on our actions and on our memory, and therefore also on our learning processes. Negative emotions make learning harder because they can undermine attention, motivation and self-regulation. Positive emotions often have a reinforcing effect. Every teacher knows this, and most take it into account. But in eLearning, which takes place without a teacher, this does not happen.

Which Path Will Learning Analytics Take?

Henrik Køhler SimonsenCopenhagen (DK), November 2017 - Learning analytics is about collecting, measuring, analysing, and using data related to students’ online behaviour. The focus in conventional learning analytics is often on the "what" - a quantitative measurement of learner performance. Session DAT40, 07 December from 16.30 to 17:30, will make the case for an alternative, supplementary method that focuses on the "how" - a more qualitative measurement of the learning process of the student. Henrik Køhler Simonsen, PhD, MA, MBA, and Senior Consultant at Smartlearning, Denmark will take part in the discussion.
