ND's Sidney D'Mello -- Improving Learning

The University of Notre Dame's Sidney D'Mello (pictured) an Associate Professor of Psychology in the College of Arts and Letters and a couple of colleagues at M.I.T and the University of Memphis -- have created an 'emotion-sensing' computer software program that reacts to the cognitive and emotional states of students while studying.

It's called AutoTutor -- and this software has been tested on over 1,000 students who have seen an approximate ONE LETTER GRADE IMPROVEMENT! 

Boy, could I have used this in college!!!

Here's a link to the story.
