Joseph Wiggins is a Ph.D. student advised by Dr. Kristy Elizabeth Boyer. His research interests include pedagogical agents, affect (emotion) detection, intelligent tutoring systems and game-based learning. Through his research, Joseph hopes to improve the quality of educational technologies and increase the availability of systems to students.

research

My current work is exploring student characteristics and making observations about effective tutorial dialogue for different groups of students. I am currently examining student's self-efficacies, or how confident the student is in their ability to meet their learning objectives.
