Abstract

In this project we are trying to answer the following question: How can we use a smartwatch application to accelerate the memorization process of somebody who is learning the vocabulary of a second language? This question is of interest for busy people who want to improve their vocabulary in the most efficient way. In order to give these people the best possible experience, we first built such a smartwatch application, and then performed a study to investigate how actual users benefit from such an application. The main goal of the application named Time to Learn is to let users easily invest more time in learning, by taking advantage of many small time units during the day. This is called micro learning [1]. All these little time units together are a reasonable amount of time spent on studying. The results of the research show that the users invest a lot more time into studying words while using the smartwatch application. There are however still some features which could be added to give the user an even better experience.
