Online barometer: From the evaluation to the promotion of emotional competence

  • Emotions play a rather subordinate role in the scientific discourse and in practical life of learning. However, it is of great significance to deal with emotions especially in E learning to keep drop out rates at a minimum.
  • Current E learning projects carried out by the universities of Zurich and Augsburg aim to obtain process-related information from students with the aid of so-called mood barometers or online barometers in order to secure or develop the quality of learning environments.
  • The professorship for media pedagogics (Augsburg University) has placed a special emphasis on the self diagnosis of emotions. Students will be learning to constructively deal with their positive or negative emotions.
