Abstract

Various factors affect misstep learning, such as the quality and difficulty of the learning contents and the learner’s proficiency level. A system for acquiring the browsing history at the time of learning has been proposed. However, it may be insufficient to refer only to the learner’s browsing time. For example, when the browsing time is short, it can not be determined whether the learning contents were too easy for the learner or whether learning was abandoned because the learning contents were too difficult. Therefore, in this paper, we propose a method of determining the learning state of learners by simultaneously analyzing learning history information and brain wave information, not using history information and brain wave information individually. And we will show that the learning state for each learner will be able to be successfully estimated by our proposed method.
