In France, a school is planning to monitor the students in distance learning classes. They will follow the notation of the students to the lesson and whether they are bored and warn students when necessary.
France is planning to try a new method of identifying pupils following classes at the beginning of their distance learning program and ensuring that students are not disturbed. The ESG Business School in Paris will follow students’ mimics and eye movements using an artificial intelligence named Nestor in their distance learning classes starting from next spring. In this way, it will be determined where the students are losing attention and when the students are distracted, they will be able to concentrate on them with warning messages.
According to the announcement of the ESG Business School, Nestor will work with the camera on the students’ computers or in conjunction with a different camera, which will be supplied by the school. The system measures the level of general interest of the students in seconds, and it will tell the teachers when the lesson has become boring and warn the teacher to make the lesson more attention grabbing.
Nestor is not just planned to be used in distance education courses, it will also be tried in normal classrooms. It will be used for two classes in the first 30-minute marketing course. If it works it is planned to be used in all distance education courses and then to be used in normal classrooms. ESG, who previously identified inattentive students using an artificial intelligence named “emotion recognition system” in a school in Madrid, aims to make a wider measure by publishing lessons on YouTube or different video platforms in the coming years. It will not be possible to sleep in lessons after that.
