Abstract

  This article aims to explore the learning characteristics of online learners within the smart education framework, with a specific emphasis on how they might use Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to improve their educational experience. The term "online learning" refers to the process of acquiring knowledge via electronic means, most often the global web. Online education, e-learning, web-based learning, and computer-assisted learning all share this term. The challenging characteristics of such online learners for students are technical issues, lack of motivation, and slow loading times in online courses. Hence, in this research, the Internet of Things-empowered Smart Education (IoT-SE) Framework has been improved for online learners for students by leveraging IoT tech that tracks how learners interact with learning resources and their environment. This paper aims to revolutionize web-based education through tailored instructions targeting individuals' unique needs and fads as availed by the IoT-SE system. This paper offers evaluation parameters such as level of engagement among learners, retention rates on knowledge acquired while studying e-courses, and satisfaction from an online program. Besides overcoming limitations associated with conventional e-learning approaches, such systems like IoT-SE technology promise more effective pedagogy and student satisfaction for online learners.
