Humanoid Robots in Digital Teaching and Learning
Heinsch, Patrick; Handke, Jürgen
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v31 n4 p195-210 2020
Humanoid robots are gradually becoming part of everyday life as well as education. Virtual agents have demonstrated their benefits for years, and experts expect similar positive effects from the use of humanoid robots in education. Project H.E.A.R.T. (Humanoid Emotional Assistant Robots in Teaching), from Philipps-University Marburg, has developed use cases of integrating the humanoid robot Pepper from SoftBank Robotics into higher education to enhance teaching and learning. The goal of the project was to identify and investigate different classroom areas and tasks within the university in which the use of a humanoid robot can be beneficial.
