CALL FOR PAPERS: Special issue of Emotional Intelligence for Online Learning


Special issue of Emotional Intelligence for Online Learning, for the International Journal of Distance Education Technologies

Many intelligent tutoring systems have been developed and used to support students' learning. Good 
online learning systems require emotional communications happened in-between the tutors and the 
learners. Emotions play an important role when users engage in career or drama training, or language
learning situations via role-play. Interpreting player experience and affect from open-ended verbal
communication and diverse body language has been challenging research tasks. Such research is 
significantly beneficial to the development of intelligent virtual agents which are capable of 
interpreting social relationships, context, general mood and emotion, sensing or reasonably 
predicating others' inter-conversion, identifying its role and participating intelligently in 
open-ended interaction. How to develop a system which can identify user's emotion and/or present 
its feelings to the user according to user' swords, behaviors, and performance in online learning 
is definitely an important, a very helpful as well an interesting research topic.

The purpose of this special issue is to explore how models, theories, and solutions of emotion 
intelligence can be used in online learning and what benefits users can receive from such emotion 
intelligence-embedded systems and agents.

Guest Editors (in alphabet order): 
Dr. Maiga Chang, Dr. Rita Kuo and Dr. Li Zhang
Suggested topics:
We cordially invite authors to submit high quality manuscripts for any application domain as long
