Abstract

In this paper, we discuss that diagnosing and taking appropriate action based on students' motivation and effort, as well as other affective characteristics, is an important part of effective ILEs. Acknowledging that a student's affective state is influenced by the environment and didactical situation, we conduct research by employing an already integrated web-based environment, namely WALLIS, which students consider part of the teaching and learning process. The system's use and ongoing evaluation permits more realistic research on affective aspects which will be conducted by employing appropriate motivational theories and student models.
