The art of learning has been studied by many around the world and different theories and studying methods have been conceived to provide insights about how human brains’ understand concepts. As technology continues to improve over the years, majority of the learning institutions in the world are using computers as a tool to enhance learning. Ipad apps, websites, video lectures are examples of how the world has embraced the use of technology to improve learning. This project explores the possibility of bringing technology to help students enhance learning and teachers bridge the gap of understanding how students learn through an active feed backing system. It is a web platform that uses tagging technique through highlighting to help teachers understand what goes behind the minds of students when they study. It gives teachers an insight of students’ studying patterns. This highlighting technique creates unique tags that spur students to delve deeper into thinking why they do not understand a concept. The author studies deeper into the theories of learning, documents the algorithm and software engineering aspects to achieve its aims in the highlighting technique that provides an active feedback.
