OCC FOR EMOTION GENERATION IN e-LEARNING SYSTEMS

Efhymios Alepis, Maria Virvou

Abstract

This paper describes an educational authoring tool that incorporates the OCC cognitive theory of emotions in order to help instructors create and author affective courses. The authoring tool provides an important facility to instructors for the creation of their own tutoring characters for the user interface of the resulting applications. In this way, the tutoring characters that are speaking, animated personas may represent the teaching behaviour of the human instructor who is in charge of the remote lessons. Students, who are going to use the resulting educational applications, will have a user interface that is more human-like and affective. Thus they may feel less deprived of the human-human interaction between them and a human teacher that would take place in the settings of a real classroom.
