This work is motivated by the need to develop decentralized P2P approaches to support learning and teaching activity in virtual universities.In this paper, we present the stimulation effects of the SmartBox for e-learning using JXTA-overlay P2P system. We also show the design and implementation of the SmartBox environment that is used for stimulating the learners motivation to increase the learning efficiency. The SmartBox is integrated with our P2P system as a useful tool for monitoring and controlling learners' activity. We found by experimental results thatthe SmartBox is an effective way to increase the learner's concentration. We also investigated the relation between learner's body movement, concentration, and amount of study. We found that when the learner is solving more exerciseshe has more body movements.This shows that when the number of body movements is hight,the learner's concentration is high. We also consider the feasibility of our P2P platform to integrate different computational end-devices.
