Development of an Evaluation Platform of Learner Engagement: A Measurement of Eye Movement with Conventional Pulsewave and Brainwave
Abstract: This paper reports on the development of a practical educational experiment platform for the evaluation of learner engagement. In order to maximize learning efficiency, many efforts have been made to evaluate the learner's mental condition throughout a learning activity. A practical platform for educational experiments has been expected to be developed; primarily, investigations of the possible usefulness of emerging biosignal measurements have had much attention. That's why we have also developed successive evaluation platforms that can measure real-time learners' biometric information, including brainwave and pulse wave. In particular, we have developed and reported the possible usefulness of our newly proposed RRI fluctuation that was calculated from the real-time Lorenz plot. On top of those platforms, this paper details the development of a new evaluation platform that can measure real-time eye movements, including eye blinking and eyeball movements using three dry electrodes embedded in smart eyeglasses. Since they are stylish normal eyeglasses in size and weight, and students can wear them without any additional stress, the incorporation of the eyeglasses into our evaluation platform is meaningful to help us look into students' learning engagement.
