Greater insight into
the process of learning

with the world’s leading biosensor platform

Education benefits from a greater understanding

Discover the processes underlying the presentation of materials, as well as how the process of learning takes place. Quantification of these mechanisms can now take place in ways that are no longer limited to just summary outputs.

Create a better understanding of learning processes

The emergence of recent technologies have begun to shape how people learn in new ways – from online courses, to VR simulations and beyond. New methods are able to advance an understanding of education in deeper and more complete ways. The use of biosensors presents the ideal opportunity to validate and test both new and old educational contexts. iMotions provides a single software platform to easily use this cutting-edge technology.

Examples of what clients are currently using iMotions for include:

  • Exploring emotional reactions to educational gamification with facial expression analysis
  • Testing the impact of VR on the learning experience with EEG
  • Investigating how student emotions shape learning
  • Looking at how reading shapes retention with eye tracking

iMotions is used at over 50 of the 100 top ranking universities in the world

Measures of teaching and learning

Go deeper with biosensor data

Modern technology, in the form of eye trackers, EEG headsets, facial expression analysis software, and EDA devices, provides data about the nuances of educational processes that occur over time.

Combining these measures gives a detailed level of understanding regarding the differences that occur across formats and conditions of teaching and learning.

The iMotions software is a complete experimental platform that allows the entire process to be run, from study design and stimulus presentation to data collection and export or analysis.
