Web-based Learning Tools: Storing Usage Data Makes a Difference

A. Merceron (Germany) and K. Yacef (Australia)


Web-based learning tools, storing and analysing usage data.


Web-based learning tools are often introduced in addition to face-to-face teaching as an extra resource for students to train themselves outside the classroom. How can teachers know whether and how these tools represent an added value for students? In this paper we argue that usage data stored by such tools help teachers to get insight on the learning impact of those tools and that this must be taken into account at the design phase. This is illustrated with two web-based tools Logic-ITA and JFLAP.
