Niche-Learning is a learning style using digital signage (DS) that lets students learn by viewing short digital learning materials (NL materials) on a large public display during class break times. At the author's university, a simple DS system has delivered NL materials for about 4 years, but many students do not view the NL materials. One cause of this undesirable situation may be that NL materials are one-sidedly delivered. Therefore, the author made the DS system interactive. The interactive DS system called “IVS” superimposes students standing in front of the display on quiz slideshows. In addition, the IVS enables the students to answer quiz questions in a slideshow by their simple body movement.
