Students’ ability to understand and manage emotions in self and others plays an important role in the success of collaborative learning. In online learning environments, the access of socio-emotional cues is reduced, and this may lead to a lack of emotion awareness that could be detrimental to collaboration and learning performances. The project we present here aims at substantially improving learning effects with social media through the use of adaptive emotion awareness technology designed to support students’ emotional regulation in online groups.
