Emotional Dialogue in a Virtual Tutor for Educational Software

María Lucila Morales-Rodríguez, Juan J. González B., Rogelio Florencia-Juárez, Julia Patricia Sánchez-Solís
2012 Research in Computing Science  
The tutor exhibits personality traits and emotions in the tutor dialogue in order to create an immersion sense in the student and thus catch his attention on the game.  ...  In this paper, we present an educational software used to enhance the skills of children in the area of math. This software has a tutor who guides the child in different activities.  ...  To control the agent's behavior, conversational markers were incorporated into standard AIML tags to specify parameters for nonverbal inputs and outputs.  ...
