Identifying and sharing emotions

Last but not least, you can identify and share your current emotional state. Happy, confident, relieved, stressed, angry, sad ... Via emojis, you can select the dominant feeling you are feeling and see what feelings are shared by other students. You can also see the history of your feelings by going back to the thread activated when you first shared. "This tool allows you to identify your emotions, reflect on them, confront them with those of others, and possibly put them into perspective. Is it "normal" to feel this way in this or that situation? In the long run, the goal is to be able to offer support in managing emotions to those who need it," explains Pascal Detroz, professor and academic head of the SMART service, who initiated the project.
