Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a framework for automatic collection and management of attention metadata. This framework enables keeping track of the learning objects that people use, how they use them, the time they spend with them, etc. By sharing their attention metadata with others, the framework can alert them on other learning objects they might be interested in. Our framework tracks user interactions with the different tools they use and then publishes that data in the open attention.XML format. The produced source can be accessed by different tools and users.
