Integrating emotional feedback to educational systems has become one of the main concerns of the affective learning research
community. This paper provides evidence that Embodied Conversational Agents (ECAs) could be effectively used as emotional
feedback to improve brainwave activity towards learning. Further research, integrating ECAs into tutoring systems is essential
to confirm these results.
