In the current paper, the authors propose a new conceptual framework in Computer Supported Learning System-CSCL design that takes emotion into account. They conduct their analysis through five layers: physiological, emotional, sociological, technological, and educational, in relation to learning. This study reviews the literature in emotional learning and emotion assessment and proposes a model for the design of a social-emotional computer supported learning system.

A Five-Layer Framework In System Design Approach With Respect To Emotion

The deep understanding of emotions and their impact in learning entails the examination of different biological, psychological and social functions and their interplay. In her book, Davou (2000) resembles the study of emotions with a chain that consists of six interdependent rings namely neuro-bio-cognitive (brain functioning as studied in cognitive neuroscience), emotional (the study of emotions in clinical psychology) and socio-cultural (current social and cultural factors that affect human behaviour). Influenced by her approach and in analogy to the hierarchical, layer model of network communications, we describe a five-layer approach in designing collaborative learning systems with respect to emotion.
