AtGentive: Attentive Agents for Collaborative Learners
The objective of this project is to investigate the use of artificial agents for supporting the management of the attention of young or adult learners in the context of individual and collaborative learning environments.
Practically, this project consists in the design of artificial agents (that are able to coach the learners in reaching higher level of performance in managing their attention in the learning process. These agents, which appear as embedded characters, are able to profile the (short or long term) state of the attention of the learners by observing their actions, to assess, to analyse and to reason on these states of attention, and to provide some proactive coaching (assessment, guidance, stimulation, etc.).
These attentive agents will be designed and delivered as part of two different learning infrastructure/contexts:
The result of this project will be validated with two pilot sites:
systems: ICDT platform
AtGentNet is a collaborative and social networking platform for supporting the social attention of a group of managers engaged in a blended training programme.
