Eye tracking technology can be used to explore cognitive activities in learning processes. Using eye movement measurements obtained through this technology provides the opportunity to test assumptions about where people look during learning. Moreover, educators who gather eye tracking data can enhance the design of their teaching/learning materials on the basis of learners’ information-processing capabilities. In this talk, I will briefly introduce the basics of eye tracking technology and present some of our related projects.
