Abstract

This paper discusses learning behavior analysis using a learning management system (LMS) and an e-textbook system. We collected a large number of operation logs from e-textbooks to analyze the process of learning. In addition, we conducted a quiz to check the level of understanding. In our study, we especially focus on an analysis of the relationship between learning behavior in informal learning and its effectiveness in the corresponding quiz. We apply a machine learning and classification methodology for behavior analysis. Our experimental results demonstrate that students who undertake good informal learning achieve better scores in quizzes.
