Ubiquitous Learning Log (ULL) is defined as a digital record of what you have learned in the daily life using ubiquitous technologies. This paper focuses on how to capture learning experiences in our daily life for vocabulary learning. In our previous works, we developed a system named SCROLL (System for Capturing and Reminding Of Learning Log) in order to log, organize, recall and evaluate the learning log. However up to now, we just use an active mode to record logs. This means that a learner must take a capture of learned contents consciously and most of learning chances be lost unconsciously. This paper proposes a system named PACALL (Passive Capture for Learning Log) in order to have a passive capture using SenseCam to solve this problem. With the help of SenseCam, learner's activity can be captured as a series of images. With the help of this system, a learner can find the important images by analyzing sensor data and images processing technology. [For the full proceedings, see ED562140.]
