This monograph integrates theoretical perspectives on affect and learning with recent research in affective computing with an emphasis on building new learning technologies. The qnew perspectivesq come from the intersection of several research themes: -inBasic research on emotion, cognition, and motivation applied to learning environments -inPedagogical and motivational strategies that are sensitive to affective and cognitive processes -inMultimodal Human Computer Interfaces, with a focus on affect recognition and synthesis -inRecent advances in affect-sensitive Intelligent Tutoring Systems -inNovel methodologies to investigate affect and learning -inNeuroscience research on emotions and learningSuch integrated formats could be effective alternatives to asplit-sourcea instructions (split-attention effect; e.g., Mayer aamp; Gallini, ... than the redundancy effect was obtained when learning from wiring diagrams with accompanying textual explanations. ... memory includes separate subsystems for storing and processing visual and auditory information (Baddeley, 1986). ... presentation ( modality effect; Mayer, 1997; Mousavi, Low, aamp; Sweller, 1995; Tindall-Ford, Chandler, aamp; Sweller, 1997).
