Feasibility of a Socially Intelligent Tutor
We present a feasibility study of an intelligent tutoring system Peoplia in which a socially intelligent tutoring agent uses common instructional methods that are augmented by social features to help students learn. Peoplia features pseudo-tutor assessments, free-text answering, personalized question generation, and adaptive question selection. It allows students to work both individually and collaboratively while the tutoring friend monitors their social behavior and motivates them by socially relevant interventions.
