New Software Responds to Students´ Emotions


Researchers at the University of Notre Dame say they have created an emotion-sensing computer software that is able to assess and respond to students´ emotions, including boredom and frustration.

"AutoTutor" offers learning possibilities for students by providing "information regarding the cognitive states, motivation levels and social dynamics of the students". It was tested on 1,000 students and delivers learning gains of one letter grade.

"Much like a gifted human tutor, AutoTutor and Affective AutoTutor attempt to keep the student balanced between the extremes of boredom and bewilderment by subtly modulating the pace, direction and complexity of the learning task," researcher Sidney D´Mello says.
