We address the problem of tracking some of the student's activities in an e-learning system to obtain data that can be used to diagnose and to react appropriately to the student's actions. In order to find out how long a student deals with a single paragraph/text-unit on a web-page we developed a poor man's eye tracker (PME) software, DFKeye. This tool can be configured for several appearances. The usage of a PME avoids the drawbacks of hardware eyetrackers that are not usable in an everyday learning environment.
