This paper presents a system component, so called AFFectIX, as anaffix to an e-learning system which was that way enhanced with affective abilities. AFFectIX is based on an emotion recognition sensor system and aims to reply negative emotions during human-computer interaction and to provoke an optimum emotional level for the learning process. It was implemented as a first prototype and evaluated by an ad-hoc sample of ten participants. First findings indicate a slight tendency for more satisfaction and learning success.
