How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Though recent technological advances have enabled note-taking through different modalities (e.g., keyboard, digital ink, voice), there is still a lack of understanding of the effect of the modality choice on learning. In this paper, we compared two note-taking input modalities—keyboard and voice—to study their effects on participants' learning. We...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Gaze and speech are rich contextual sources of information that, when combined, can result in effective and rich multimodal interactions. This paper proposes a machine learning-based pipeline that leverages and combines users' natural gaze activity, the semantic knowledge from their vocal utterances and the synchronicity between gaze and speech dat...

Annotation is an effective reading strategy people often undertake while interacting with digital text. It involves highlighting pieces of text and making notes about them. Annotating while reading in a desktop environment is considered trivial but, in a mobile setting where people read while hand-holding devices, the task of highlighting and typin...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We investigate the use of gaze behaviour as a means to assess password strength as perceived by users. We contribute to the effort of making users choose passwords that are robust against guessing-attacks. Our particular idea is to consider also the users’ understanding of password strength in security mechanisms. We demonstrate how eye tracking ca...

Task difficulty (TD) reflects students' subjective judgement on the complexity of a task. We examine the TDs data of 236 undergraduate students in a simulation-based Predict-Observe-Explain (POE) environment using three different labels easy, medium and hard. Generally, the students who perceive the tasks to be easy or hard perform poorly at the tr...

Mind wandering is a drift of attention away from the physical world and towards our thoughts and concerns. Mind wandering affects our cognitive state in ways that can foster creativity but hinder productivity. In the context of learning, mind wandering is primarily associated with lower performance. This study has two goals. First, we investigate t...

Despite the importance of attention in user performance, current methods for attention classification do not allow to discriminate between different attention types. We propose a novel method that combines thermal imaging and eye tracking to unobtrusively classify four types of attention: sustained, alternating, selective, and divided. We collected...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Note-taking, an active learning strategy, has a long history in the educational setting. Learners would tend to make notes for a variety of reasons such as planning their learning activities, extracting useful information from the learning content and to reflect their understanding about learning material [9]. The research studies conducted in educ...
