LISA – Learning Analytics for Sensor-Based Adaptive Learning

LISA is a joint research project funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The main goal of LISA is to develop learning solutions which use a sensor device for learner support.

Three research institutes (HTW Berlin, Humboldt University and Leibniz-Institut für Wissensmedien Tübingen) and three industrial partners (SGM, Serious Game Solutions, NEOCOSMO) cooperate to research on exploration of sensor data for learning environment, software and hardware development for physiological signal detection, research on intuitive feedback to facilitate learning, backend development for data structure and communciation and application of research results in adaptive system.

As of October 2017, detail specification for hardware requirement was made for a wearable and smartmonitor prototypes along with backend structure. For a wearable prototype, we are aiming to integrate heart rate sensor, electrodermal activity sensor along with a few environment detecting sensors. The wearable prototype will communicate with smartmonitor prototype by wireless communication channel to send and receive data. The smartmonitor will receive processed data from LISA backend. The overview of the LISA system can be described as a figure below:
