Intellectual Intelligent Tutoring System: The ITS with Emotions

O.P. Rishi

Abstract— Emotional  Intelligence  (EI)  is  emerging  as  an  important  factor  in  high performance at work, at school, collage, or at home. Learner performances depend on the external conditions or circumstances that exist when learning occurs.  Recent research results indicate that cognitive processes are related to emotions and it play a powerful role in cognitive processes. Since  emotions  are  omnipresent  in  any  kind  of  interaction  it  can  be advantageous to take them into account, particularly in the context of an intelligent tutoring system (ITS).  In traditional learning environments, the teacher attempts to ensure the best conditions for learning and especially the emotional conditions.  For   Example, he introduces a joke in the classroom, in order to change the current emotions of the learners, if they are bored or frustrated. Whereas the existing Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) are lacked of considering the emotional conditions of learning that should   exist   in   order to motivate the learners and to facilitate the achievement of learning. In  the  present  paper  we  propose  a  way  to  detect  and  manage  learner’s emotions  in  order  to  improve  the  learning  process  and  the  emotional conditions of learning that should exist in a learning activity according to the  cognitive  process  activated.  Also, we  demonstrate  that  adding  an emotional  charge  to  a  learning  content  additionally  helps  the  learning process, in particular the memorization process, which is known to be of central importance in any form of learning. These mark a significant step towards Intellectual Intelligent Tutoring Systems that are emotionally intelligent and hence cope in a beneficiary w ay with a learner’s emotions.
