Abstract— networking with the help of which real-world objects


Abstract— Technical skills and knowledge gaining are taken
care in today’s learning scenario. Internet of Things (IoT) refers, to
technological advancements in the networking with the help of which real-world
entities can be connected to communicate with each other over the internet. In
general, replacing the teacher or giving quick instruction is not the goal nowadays.
To do so,  academic institutes should investigate
the future technologies that comes out.  An IoTs enabled classroom, or Personal PC is
without question adequately equipped to provide made-to-measure learning for
students with individual needs, interactive learning experiences, faster
feedback, easy collaboration access for both students and teachers and
facilitation for remote learning. The efficiency and cost benefits from an
administrative point of view are also enormous. In this paper, it will discuss
the study the impact and model of IoT based e-Learning system refer to
technological advancements in the networking with the help of which real-world
objects can be connected to communicate with each other over the internet and
also conclude how machine learning algorithms enhance the performance of IoT enabled
E-learning system.

Some of the modern IoT artillery
in this domain includes digital highlighters, smarter boards. It means the
printed text could be digitally conveyed to the smartphone or any other app at
an incredible speed through tools like Scan marker and c-pen. Interactive
boards can get, acknowledge, and reciprocate data, simplifying and stimulating
the overall learning activity. Just imagine an outline where students sitting
in a classroom or front of PC at their home can interact with their friends,
classmates, teachers, and educators scattered over the world. Now, let’s
suppose the lesson of the day has focused on sea life. To give students an
especially exciting – and profoundly educational – experience, the mentor
decides to access live information caused by sensors and live feeds monitoring
a particular body of water. The IoT refers to a better vision whereby ‘things’
(objects) such as everyday objects (entity), places, and environments have
interconnected with one another via the Internet. An example of a simple IoT
object now available in some homes is a thermostat which can determine when
people occupy certain rooms and alter levels of heating, lighting and other
functions in the house accordingly. By widening the Internet from “a network of
interconnected computers to a network of interconnected objects,” the IoT will
cover a vast and complex network of devices. These devices will add sensors to
measure the data of environment around them, actuators which physically act
back into their environment such as processors to handle, opening the door and
store the massive data generated, nodes to send the information and organizers
to help manage sets of these parts. Through this, it has the potential to
significantly extend, enrich and even shift the relationship between people and
the world around them. In fact, many are hoping that the IoT will play a
pivotal role in addressing many of today’s societal challenges such as an aging
society, deforestation, traffic congestion and recyclability. This
interconnection of physical objects is expected to magnify the profound
consequences that large-scale networked connections are having on our organization,
gradually resulting in a genuine paradigm shift 1. In this paper, it has been
review recent E-Learning-related literature associated with the IoT vision. One
aim is to provide a resource for the E-learners to understand the current state
of research associated with the new IoT agenda.


Related Work

In this section, some of the earlier works on the
subjects have cited. According to Cisco 2, the organizations have already
experienced the Internet of Things (IoT) – the networked connection of things, soon
some capabilities like context awareness, energy independence, and increased
processing power are added to these things then IoT becomes IoE (Internet of Everything). Also, according to their research, 99.4 percent of
physical objects which can be a part of IoE is yet to be connected 3. The
whitepaper concludes by saying, “There is tremendous value in connecting the
unconnected with intelligent networks across education. This paper demonstrates
IoE’s potential impact on making education more relevant, engaging and
motivating learners, and enabling faster time to mastery. However, to realize
the benefits of connecting people, processes, data, and things, reliable
connectivity and continuous access must be guaranteed. Additionally for IoE to
be accepted, both policymakers and educators must be well-prepared not only to
exploit but also to understand potential risks.” IoT will enable life-enhancing
services, regarding the role of IoT in education say, “In education,
mobile-enabled solutions will tailor the learning process to each student’s
needs, improving overall proficiency levels, while linking virtual and physical
classrooms to make learning more convenient and accessible 4. IoT might serve
as the backbone for the universal learning environment and enable active smart
environments to accept and identify objects and retrieve information from the
internet to facilitate their adaptive functionality 5. A learner may gain the
knowledge not only by connecting to the learning contents via networks by using
desktop computers or wireless handheld devices such as Personal Digital
Assistants (PDAs) and mobile phones but also by communicating to the
microprocessors (e.g., RFID – Radio Frequency Identification) embedded in
devices.” In the reference paperR, two groups 25 students each were enrolled
in a similar course. However, one group was taught using traditional methods
and other using an interactive system of the internet of things. After
conducting various tests and analysis, they concluded that “Internet of
Objects, applied as a tool to support the teaching process, improves student
academic performance”.
