    In this paper we discuss our approach to integrate emotions in the agent based tutoring system INES (Intelligent Nursing Education System). First we discuss the INES system where we emphasize the emotional component of the system. Afterwards we show how a more advanced emotion generation architecture, SHAME, can be integrated in INES. Then we show how INES can be extended with an action selection architecture for emotional agents. Finally we discuss some future research on how to integrate emotions, action selection and adaptivity in INES. Keywords: agent architectures, emotions, tutoring systems.
