Abstract

This text aims to present the current state of the art of the e-learning systems that consider the student’s affect. It presents the perspectives adopted by researchers for the solution of problems (for example, which kind of tools we might use to recognize users’ emotions) and also some better-known works in order to exemplify. It also describes the necessary background to understand these studies, including some concepts in the fields of Artificial Intelligence, Computers in Education, and Human-Computer Interaction, and a brief introduction on the main theories about emotion. The authors conclude the chapter by presenting challenges and the main difficulties of research in affectivity in e-learning systems and ideas on some new work on the matter.
