Hollands & Bakir (2015). Efficiency of automated detectors of learner engagement and affect compared with traditional observation methods

Hollands, F. M., & Bakir, I. (2015). Efficiency of Automated Detectors of Learner Engagement and Affect Compared with Traditional Observation Methods. http://doi.org/10.13140/RG.2.1.1332.8082 A really interesting article, looking at direct human observation, video observation, sensor-light and sensor-heavy observations. For small projects, direct human observation seems to work best (for now), but costs too much to use at scale (or for long). Technology-mediated observations cost more to develop, have lower reliability, but are able to be deployed at much higher scales and for much lower costs over time....
