The technique of eye tracking is used to record the position and movement of the eyes. This method calculates the position by tracking the reflection of the light from the cornea and compares it with the center of the eye. Analyzing the data on the eye movement and position makes it possible to determine the way in which a person processes visual i...

This paper presents an electronic system for tracking students’ attendance. “BeHere” was implemented at Subotica Tech – College of Applied Sciences, introducing gamification elements into class attendance tracking. Given that the first year of their studies in higher education is the most crucial time period, it is vital that students are motivated...
Conference Paper
The Bologna system makes class attendance mandatory. Recording attendance is inefficient and takes up too much class time especially with larger groups of students. If a professor records student attendance manually, they have to look at student, write it down and go to the next student. If the check takes five minutes of a 45-minute class, that me...

Computer-based testing, by facilitating the interaction between teaching and learning, can improve the quality of learning through improved formative feedback which is a key aspect of formative assessment. This study makes a contribution to the research on computer-based testing by examining the mode differences between the paper-and-pencil test an...
Conference Paper
The recommender system becomes an aiding tool which could be a solution for handling the huge stream of information from the Internet. These systems collect information from the users, process it and provide it to those who are interested in them. By filtering the information from hyperspace and presenting these in some sorted format, navigation be...

This study was carried out to observe, measure and analyze the effects of using software visualization in teaching programming with participants from two institutions of higher educations in Serbia. Basic programming learning is notorious for complex for many novice students at university level. The visualizations of examples of program code or pro...
Article
In this work the authors suggest the introduction of two new parameters apart from the existing ones in the metadata system. In the reusability process when choosing from learning object repository in order to use it in one's own work it may be useful to have some data regarding how that particular learning object was evaluated by other users.
Conference Paper
Programming is a difficult cognitive skill to learn. It requires knowledge and skills in many areas, such as the syntax, semantics and pragmatics of programming languages, creative problem solving, development environment and a multitude of software tools (e.g. IDE, compiler), algorithms and data structures, programming concepts and paradigms (e.g....

One of the crucial issues in Adaptive Educational Hypermedia is to recognize which distance learning systems' environment settings can help improve the learning process. This work presents the efforts to find those factors, which could help students in reading those e-curricula which are assembled mostly from pure text, without multimedia elements....
Article
Full-text available
In adaptive learning systems for distance learning attention is focused on adjusting the learning material to the needs of the individual. Adaptive tests adjust to the current level of knowledge of the examinee and is specific for their needs, thus it is much better at evaluating the knowledge of each individual. The basic goal of adaptive computer...

Technological progress, responsible for the declining costs of computers, coupledwith the advancement of computer adaptive software have promoted computer adaptivetesting (CAT) in higher education, offering alternatives to the conventional paper andpencil examinations. The CAT testing process, statistically conducted through ItemResponse Theory, is...
Article
The process of introducing computers into the knowledge testing begins in early '70s. In the beginning, the technical capabilities of computers and their price restricted the use of computerized tests. With the advantages provided by new technologies, this type of testing is beginning to develop, and therefore there is a large number of researches...
