Detection and utilisation of learning-related emotion using machine learning within an education setting

Project Details


This PhD project aims to explore and investigate different NLP and machine learning based methods and their application to teaching and learning. Different sentiment analysis models will be explored to track emotions in students’ learning. In addition, the research will focus on exploring and designing a novel approach to develop a way to capture and track students’ learning-related emotions and behaviours using NLP methods and machine learning techniques.

The project will be in collaboration with Bohunt Education Trust; a pioneering multi-academy trust, responsible for an expanding collection of schools in England. A number of their schools (located in Horsham, Worthing, Wokingham and Petersfield) have 1-2-1 schemes with iPads.
