Incredible technological progress allows for enhancement of education quality. Existing software developed in USA, France and Singapore, is aimed at analysing personal engagement of the students during the lessons. The project describes a system that analyses data from ССTV cameras installed in the classrooms, and by means of machine learning tracks students faces, emotions and level of engagement, subsequently agregating data according to student groups, faculties, courses, and visualizing final data for interactive panels.
Just decades ago there was no instrument to track the engagement of students, for instance, only in Moscow campus of the Financial University the lessons are held daily from 8:30 a.m. till 10 p.m. in more than 500 classrooms. Technologies advance rapidly and now the system being developed at the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation offers a flexible scalable cloud service automatically сollecting video data from cameras installed in the classrooms and displays final metrics of student engagement in Microsoft Azure.
