Abstract

Design an Empathic Virtual Human to Encourage and Persuade Learners in e-Learning Systems Chin-Yeh Wang Taiwan e-Learning & Digital Archives Program Office National Central University, Taiwan 886(3)4227151-35801 Gwo-Dong Chen Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering National Central University, Taiwan 886(3)4227151-35802 Chen-Chung Liu Graduate Institute of Network Learning Technology National Central University, Taiwan 886(3)4227151-35412 Baw-Jhiune Liu Department of Computer Science and Engineering Yuan-Ze University, Taiwan 886(3)4638000-2366 chinyea@teldap.ncu.edu .tw chen@csie.ncu.edu.tw ccliu@cl.ncu.edu.tw bjliu@saturn.yzu.edu.tw ABSTRACT Studies indicate that making learners feel good is important only minor to clear knowledge transformation. Many studies have tried to use virtual humans as a part of interface in learning systems to increase the effect of instructions. Based on social interaction and pedagogical theories, many e-learning systems use animated films or virtual reality to boost human-computer engagement and ease their negative emotions. However, affective learning systems still need much research to improve their functionalities and usability. This study proposed a convenient approach to develop an emotionally interactive learning system; learners can express their emotions by mouse-clicking while learning. A virtual human was created to empathically react to learners in proactive and reactive ways to encourage and persuade them into persistent learning and help achieve their goals.
