Emotional scaffolding with respect to time factors in Networking Collaborative Learning Environments

Michalis Feidakis


With regard to learning, emotional considerations have been included in the research agenda for a long time and literature offers a variety of studies evaluating the role of emotions in different settings (class, tests and exams, studying at home, etc.). This knowledge and experience has tentatively begun to endow intelligent network systems with emotion assessment and affective feedback capabilities, although the process is still in its infancy. This paper reviews emotional aspects in learning and affect recognition as well as feedback strategies. In the described strategies, the need for considering the time factor is also stressed.
