Abstract

Recently, there has been an increasing interest in learner modeling in order to provide personalized computer based learning experiences. Generally, researchers and practitioners use questionnaires as a method to model learners, including their personalities, which can be time consuming and not motivating. Therefore, this paper presents a new approach for modeling the learner’s personality, specifically introvert/extrovert, using an online educational game and Learning Analytics (LA) system.
