Whether quantitative or qualitative, performed live or on recorded data, regardless of the theoretical frameworks involved, data analysis in the EILab represents a partnership between researchers and “cognitive machines.” Continue readingRead More
The following summarizes new features of Noldus FaceReader 6 and the research on which it is based. FaceReader is a sophisticated software application available in the EILab, Faculty of Education, UOIT. FaceReader 6 detects the six basic emotions defined by Eckman, and also contempt. Additionally, it offers major enhancements to FaceReader 5 in several areas. Continue readingRead More
The following is a basic introduction to Noldus FaceReader and the research on which it is based. FaceReader is a sophisticated software application available in the EILab, Faculty of Education, UOIT. It is an advanced tool for automatic analysis of facial expressions, providing users with an computer-generated assessment of a person’s emotion. It automatically identifies the expressions: happy, sad, angry, surprised, scared, disgusted, contempt, and neutral. These are the so-called “basic emotions,” a construct developed by Eckman.

The following represents basic operational instructions EILab’s camera and video hardware installed at the Faculty of Education. These include four AXIS ceiling-mounted cameras and supporting hardware, and a variety of USB cameras and USB extension cables.
Year five of this project for UOIT has been one of transitioning from mostly installation and initiation of many systems to now engaging in the next phase which is the catching-up to get where we want to be with the research. Although we had some early students completing their masters using the first wave of mobile devices with a variety of learners with some disabilities, none of them made use of the data collection and analysis systems in the EILAB as it was just recently completed.

The EILAB Observation Room M06 features an iMac and a PC/Windows workstation set behind three glass panels, offering researchers a wide view of the main lab area. The computer systems are specifically configured to support technology-enabled, educational research, with special emphasis on video capture, facial analysis (emotion detection) and behavioural/event tagging/analysis using the Noldus suite of research software (noldus.com).
