    Abstract

    The Fitbit Data Collection System (FDCS) is designed to facilitate measuring heart rate response related to Language Learning (LL) anxiety. Using Fitbit Wristbands and the Fitbit Cloud, the FDCS can track the heart rates for multiple test subjects on-demand or automatically. This data can be aggregated, synchronized and transferred directly to a statistical program for further analysis. This paper provides researchers with an explanation of why the tool was built, its functionality and how it will be used in a forthcoming LL anxiety study.
