Application: Assisting remote education learners (Patent ID: US20240105074A1)

The patent filed by IBM focuses on techniques for assisting remote education learners by collecting data from different environments, generating behavior patterns, determining learner classifications, applying de-bias techniques, selecting educational material, and providing feedback. The method involves analyzing learner behavior during exams to identify non-cognitive learners and tailor educational content accordingly. The system uses data from various sources like cameras, microphones, biometric devices, sensors, and IoT devices to create a comprehensive learning environment.

Furthermore, the patent outlines additional operations such as identifying teacher learning devices, recommending tailored invigilation, training predictive models, analyzing context dimensions and phases of exam behavior, and updating feedback based on stakeholder input. The computer program product and system described in the patent aim to enhance the remote learning experience by personalizing educational content, monitoring learner progress, and adapting teaching strategies based on behavioral patterns and classifications.
