Proceedings of: 1st International Workshop on Cloud Education Environments (WCLOUD 2012), Antigua, Guatemala, November 15-16, 2012. One of the most common functionalities in cloudbased learning environments is the recommendation of learning resources. Many approaches have been proposed to deploy recommender systems into an educational environment. Currently, there is an increasing interest in including affective information into the process to generate the recommendations for the learner. In this paper, we propose a cloud-based architecture for a system that recommends learning resources according to the affective state of the learner. Furthermore, we provide th...
