Studying Stress on e-Learning Users
E-Learning, much like any other communication processes, has been significantly shaped by technological evolution. In its original form, e-Learning aimed to bring the education closer to people, making it more modular and personalized. However, in reality, we observe that it represents a separation between student and teacher, simplifying this relationship to the exchange of ”text-based messages”, leaving aside all the important contextual richness of the classroom. We are addressing this issue by devising a contextual layer for e-Learning platforms. Particularly, in this paper we describe a solution to convey information about the level of stress of the students so that the teacher can take better and more informed decisions concerning the management of the learning process.
