Being able to be attentive as necessary on an e-learning task is not always easy for a young student, especially for chil- dren aected by Attention Decit Hyperactivity Disorder.

Abstract

Being able to be attentive as necessary on an e-learning task is not always easy for a young student, especially for chil- dren aected by Attention Decit Hyperactivity Disorder. To support this category of students, we aim to design a soft- ware module able to: (a) automatically detect their level of attention when working on a learning task and, (b) propose suitable stimuli to re-capture their attention on it. This pa- per describes the rst two steps towards this application: (1) the building of an attention model, meant as the base of the software module for automatically measuring the attention level, and (2) the study of a face tracker to measure the at- tention level in real time. Finally, it proposes some possible stimuli which can be used to re-capture the lost attention.
