Evaluation of Educational Software for Marine Training with the Aid of Neuroscience Methods and Tools

ABSTRACT: The evaluation with the use of neuroscience methods and tools of a student?s satisfaction ? happiness from using the e-learning system (e-learning platforms, e-games, simulators) poses an important re-search subject matter. In the present project it is presented a research on course conducted in the Faculty of Merchants Officers, Marine Academy of Aspropyrgos. In particular, this research with the use of a neurosci-ence tool-gaze trucker, investigates the amount of satisfaction of the students using a simulator by monitoring the users? eye movement in combination with the use of qualitative and quantitative methods.
