Abstract

In our previous works, we developed a system named SCROLL in order to log, organize, recall and evaluate the learning log. However up to now, we just use an active mode to record logs. Learners must take a capture of learned contents consciously and most of learning chances is lost unconsciously. In order to solve this problem, we started a project named PACALL (Passive Capture for Learning Log) in order to have a passive capture using SenseCam. With the help of SenseCam, learner's activity can be captured as a series of images. We also developed a system to help a learner find the important images by analyzing sensor data and images processing technology. Finally, the selected images will be uploaded to the current SCROLL system as ubiquitous learning logs. This research suggests that SenseCam can be used to do passive capture of learning experiences and workload of reflection can be reduced by analyzing sensor data of SenseCam.
