With the increasing use of digital learning materials in higher education, the accumulated operational log data provide a unique opportunity to analyzing student learning behaviors and their effects on student learning performance to understand how students learn with e-books. Among the students’ reading behaviors interacting with e-book systems, w...

The abundance of courses available in a university often overwhelms students as they must select courses that are relevant to their academic interests and satisfy their requirements. A large number of existing studies in course recommendation systems focus on the accuracy of prediction to show students the most relevant courses with little consider...
Chapter
Mastering self-regulated learning (SRL) can help learners achieve their academic goals. In this paper, we discuss the designs and development of a learning analytics dashboard (LAD) we created to support learners’ metacognition, the Metaboard. We tested the Metaboard with four student participants, then surveyed their perceptions of the LAD and its...

In this study, we used a learning analytics dashboard (LAD) in a higher education course to support students' metacognition and evaluated the effects of its use. The LAD displays students' reading path and specific behaviors when viewing digital learning materials. The study was conducted on 53 university students to identify the factors that affec...

本稿では,学習者のメタ認知を喚起することを目的に、ラーニングアナリティクスのアプローチを踏まえ、学習ダッシュボード”メタボード”の開発を行った. 具体的には、授業受講者全体と個人について、授業資料の各ページに対する学習行動を比較することができるものである.本システムについて形成的評価を行ったところ, 他者比較ができ、自分の学習に対して内省意識が高まる等のインターフェースについては高評価であったものの, 行動に移すまでには機能追加が必要といった課題が指摘された
Chapter
The existing researches and developments of dashboard visualizing results from learning analytics mainly serve the instructors instead of learners in a direct manner. Effective visualizations extracted from learning log data can help the students to reflect and compare studying activities and access their metacognition to improve their self-regulat...

Full-text available
This poster presents an initial prototype design and development of a learning analytics dashboard supporting self-regulated learning, from which the students can benefit from LA more directly. The current stage of the development focuses on providing visualizations of learning processes and behaviors extracted from operation log data of an e-book...
Conference Paper

With the increase of digital learning materials in higher education systems, a better understanding of student reading behavior and their effect on student performance get attention. Our research shows that, on average, each e-book system user uses "jump-back" to navigate a course slides for 12.7 times. In this paper, we aim to understand the stude...

A course recommendation system can assist students in finding suitable courses through a personalized approach. Showing why the course is recommended serves as a bridge between the recommender system and student, could increase student's trust in the system and persuade the student to accept the course. This paper presents a study of the factors th...

Metacognition is an aspect in self-regulated learning and is necessary to achieve such learning in an effective and efficient manner. However, it is not always easy and accurate for learners to monitor or assess their own metacognition. In this study, we designed a learning analytics dashboard to improve self-regulated learning in online environmen...

The Kashiwa Library (KL), The University of Tokyo, holds a collection of old paper maps over the world, about a half of which were originally collected for the International Map Exhibition 1980 in Tokyo. The collection has 3,200 maps published in the 1970s and 1980s, and 1,260 of them were displayed at the exhibition. The map collection is importan...

Transit Oriented Development is the approach of urban development which maximizes the land use of residential, business and leisure around the public transit stops. A good TOD system can not only alleviate the contradiction between traffic congestion and insufficient land use for urban development but also significantly improve the convenience of u...
Conference Paper
Extended learning support systems for all-age education requires inclusive user interface design, especially for elderly users. A dual-tablet user interface with simplified visual layers and more intuitive operations was proposed aiming to reduce the physical and mental loads of elderly learners. An initial prototype with basic functions of viewing...
Conference Paper
To improve designs of e-learning materials, it is necessary to know which word or figure a learner felt "difficult" in the materials. In this pilot study, we measured electroencephalography (EEG) and eye gaze data of learners and analyzed to estimate which area they had difficulty to learn. The developed system realized simultaneous measurements of...
Chapter
Recently, many kinds of location-aware applications of smartphone are developed. However, it is difficult to test them for usability in the same way as the non-location-aware ones because of the test environment. For example, in case of supportive applications for emergency situations, the usability test can be carried out only in normal period of...
Chapter
Extended learning environments involving system to collect data for learning analytics and to support learners will be useful for all-age education. As the first steps towards to build new learning environments, we developed a system for multimodal learning analytics using eye-tracker and EEG measurement, and inclusive user interface design for eld...
Article
Conventional paper-based tourist maps are still created and provided by many local tourism organizations, as they have advantages in representing highly detailed and contextual information, although the static medium limits the functions of such maps. To benefit these analog maps from location-aware environments, interactivity, and data feedback fr...
Chapter
A course named Seminar of Culture Studies is given to undergraduate students in the School of Cultural and Creative Studies of Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo, Japan, in which a new mobile application named Manpo was applied for the students to create location-based audio tour content in 2013, 2014 and 2015. With little background knowledge on ge...
Article
The current user-generated content (UGC) in mobile location-based services (LBS) is mainly bound to geographic points and represented based on web mappings. The authors have proposed a Human-Centered Mobile Mapping framework to integrate smartphones’ positioning functions with various maps including hand-drawn maps. The framework is able to extend...
Chapter
The current location-based mobile applications for tourists usually use Web maps as base maps with attached objects like POIs (points of interest) to provide tourists with relevant information, which relies on positioning functions of the current handsets. However, the diversity of maps and geo-information representation methods are insufficient, a...

Current apartment renting web sites provide services to search apartments by attribute filters while they lack the services to help find areas that are convenient for living and meet customers’ personal preference. In many cases, people not only need attributes of the apartments meeting their requirements, but also need the attributes of the area b...
Article
Although commercial Web mapping is popular now, illustrated maps are widely used in print media and have advantages. The immeasurable distortions of illustrated maps create difficulties when applying them in location-based services. Based on previous research, the authors propose an improved framework for supporting illustrated maps to be integrate...
Chapter
Paper route maps are common for tools assisting walking tours, but they are not so kind to readers. Some commercial mobile applications for walking tours are available; it is difficult in manual operation for maps. There are fewer frameworks to integrate multiple hand-drawing well-designed maps with GPS and other digital content such as photographs...

A mathematic expression of dynamic network and dynamic link object which is the basic unit of dynamic network is introduced. Evolutions of dynamic link object are classified into three types which are geometrical evolution, topological evolution and life evolution. Modeling life evolution could express inheritance relationship between two dynamic l...
