Online courses have increased public access to q上海后花园女神会所uality educational resources, b

ut unlike traditional classrooms, the teachers cannot directly monitor and interact with the

ir students when teaching online, which can lead to disengaged students and poor feedback.

To resolve these issues, three students from Tsinghua and the University of Tsukuba in Japan

have created an AI-based model that can be integrated into online teaching platforms to analyze f

acial expressions and “bullet screens”, real-time viewers’ comments on the screen.

The model then crunches the data and creates a line graph that tells the teacher exactly when and what p

arts of the lesson students find most interesting or difficult. The project won third prize at th

e 2018 International Collegiate Competition for Brain-Inspired Computing hosted by Tsinghua.

“This empowers teachers to gain objective, timely and multifaceted insights into

their students’ state of learning, which can be used to assess and improve their lessons,” said Qie Nan, an ind

ustrial engineering doctoral candidate at Tsinghua and one of the people behind the project.
