AN AFFECTIVE ROLE MODEL OF SOFTWARE AGENT FOR EFFECTIVE AGENT-BASED E-LEARNING BY INTERPLAYING BETWEEN EMOTIONS AND LEARNING

Shaikh Mostafa Al Masum, Mitsuru Ishizuka

Abstract

E-learning could become the major form of training and development in organizations as technologies will improve to create a fully interactive and humanized learning environment (Tim L. Wentling, et al, 2000). Hence to recognize this objective this paper would like to explain about an affective role model of a software agent to facilitate interactive online learning by considering and incorporating emotional features associated to learning with a view to strengthening the expectation of Lister (Lister, et al, 1999) that the differences between F-to-F and purely web-based courses are rapidly disappearing. The paper first presents the relationships between emotion and learning from different literatures and surveys. Then an affective model for e-learning is explored. After the model the paper enlists the emotion dynamics underpinned by a software agent. The paper concludes with the notion of future and extension of further research.
