This paper explores Collaborative Virtual Environments (CVEs) for Affective Elearning as an alternative communication technology potentially allowing interlocutors to express themselves emotionally in an efficient and effective way. Potential applications for such CVEs systems are all areas where people cannot meet together physically but wish to discuss or collaborate on certain matters, for example in distance learning based in the affective communication. Moreover, we will explore how the agents can communicate emotion. To investigate how emotions can efficiently and effectively be visualized in CVEs, an animated virtual head (Emotional Embodied Conversational Agent) was designed to express the six universal emotions. In this research work, we propose emotional framework for an intelligent emotional system. This system is called EMASPEL (Emotional Multi-Agents System for Peer to peer E-Learning), based on a multi-agents architecture.
