Using a Telepresence Robot in an Educational Contex

Abstract : This paper deals with the use of telepresence robots in an educational context. To this day, these uses are often related to the problematic of "homebound students" 1. The emphatic context associated with these students masks the pedagogical difficulties encountered by telepresence learners. In this article, we first detail the use of the robot by homebound students, highlighting motivational factors. Then we focus on persistence using the robot, once this emphatic context declines. Finally, we describe our attempts to reduce transactional distance by adding connected learning environments.
