This study aims to investigate students’ reactions and perceptions to the Learning Analytics Dashboard (LAD). LAD was designed and developed by researchers to present students’ online learning activity in a visualized display. An eye tracking system was incorporated to measure students’ eye-movement, including eye fixation, saccade and their sub derivatives on LAD. The results are derived from the data-mining of what the eye-tracking system generates. This study is expected to support a smart learning environment, where students can effectively monitor their online behavior patterns in real-time using their mobile devices. Students can utilize such information to change their learning patterns, and improve performance.
