... By using cameras that are fixed in position relative to the head, typically on a set of goggles, such systems fail to maintain alignment of the camera and pupillary axes as the eyes move, and require implanted patients to direct their field of view solely with head scanning, while suppressing eye movements 14,15 , an unnatural behavior that requires substantial training 46,47 . Misalignments between the camera position and the patients' gaze position impair perception and decrease performance in simple object localization tasks 48 ; even minor misalignments between the eye and camera optical axes are known to affect performance in prosthesis user 49 . ...
... Evidence suggests that exchange can lead to domain specific identity changes in adolescents (Greischel et al., 2018). Similarly, exploratory qualitative research indicates that exchange drives identity development in emerging adults (McKay et al., 2020). These findings show that exchange represents a context that may facilitate identity development for young people. ...
... VibroSleeve [22] proposed placement of 16 vibrating disk motors on a sleeve worn around the forearm (a row of four motors on each forearm quadrant: dorsal, ventral, medial and lateral) for arm guidance in 3D Cartesian space. In a test where they examined the user's ability to correctly identify the stimulation side (top/bottom/left/right), they simultaneously activated all the four motors on that side for 500ms before requesting participant response resulting in 100% accuracy. ...
... However, the neglect of investigating learners' emotions hinders insight into the learning process (Cleveland-Innes & Campbell, 2012). Thus, boredom, despite not being "conspicuous" in learning, has received increasing attention over the past decade, especially in terms of the frequency with which it occurs, types of boredom, and its antecedents and consequences (e.g., Buhr, Daniels, & Goegan, 2019;Ghensi, Skues, Sharp, & Wise, 2020;Goetz et al., 2014;Pekrun, Hall, Goetz, & Perry, 2014). ...
... Importantly, the different processes have also been found to be driven by different contextual influences (Sica et al., 2017). Student exchange programs encompass significant contextual changes for participants and may provide numerous opportunities for identity development (McKay et al., 2019). ...
... The training and education of workers have been noted as a critical success factor for lean manufacturing and other related improvement initiatives implementation in various industrial settings [27][28][29][30][31]. Proper resources must be allocated for workers' training, and management should encourage workers to attend the training by providing the appropriate rewards and outcomes for those engaging in training activities [10,32]. Experiences during training may also alter a learner's intention to complete the training [33]. Failure to provide proper and adequate training could even lead to low morale in the workplace [34,35]. ...
... We suggest that different workplace learning goals and their associated degree of self-regulation affect how individuals engage in learning. For example, educational research has shown that the degree of self-regulation of learning goals is positively associated with learners' persistence (Vansteenkiste et al., 2006), achievement (Grolnick et al., 1991), goal attainment, and satisfaction (Skues et al., 2019). Moreover, individuals engaging in workplace learning because they are generally interested in the topic and want to learn something new (= intrinsic goal) might benefit from other learning materials than individuals who need to solve a specific work-related problem defined by external demands or contingencies (= external goal). ...
... To replace the costly and subjective evaluation of human expert with an automated system, several works investigate exercise classification for body motion tracking [12], [18], activity classification [6], [19], gait analysis [20], robot programming [21], virtual reality [22], and rehabilitation therapy [1]. To capture motion data, researchers employ RGBD cameras [23], Accelerometers [24], Kinect [2], Gyroscopes [25], Vicon [23], IR cameras [4] and so on. ...
... Since the previous decade, the global issue of cyberbullying has piqued the interest of academics. In contrast, scholars from all around the world have yet to agree on how to draw a straight line between cyberbullying and traditional bullying (Alipan et al., 2020;Chun et al., 2020;Dennehy et al., 2020;Kofoed & Staksrud, 2019;Langos, 2012;Peter & Petermann, 2018). Therefore, the simple definition of cyberbullying is a source of debate among academics. ...
... In 2020, 82% of adults (aged 16 years and over) in the United Kingdom (UK) were estimated to own a smartphone [16], up from 17% in 2008 [17]. Consequently, recent years have witnessed an increase in the number of smartphone applications, referred to here as 'apps' , marketed as increasing personal safety by reducing an individual's vulnerability to violence [18][19][20][21]. User demand for such apps has also increased; two thirds (62.9%) of participants in a study exploring mobile phone app preferences stated that they would consider downloading a personal safety app [22]. ...
