Abstract

Integrating emotional feedback to educational systems has become one of the main concerns of the affective learning research community. This paper provides evidence that Embodied Conversational Agents (ECAs) could be effectively used as emotional feedback to improve brainwave activity towards learning. Further research, integrating ECAs into tutoring systems is essential to confirm these results.
