Abstract

The goal of the work presented in this paper is to develop an Intelligent Animated Agent with Natural Behaviour (IAAN). This agent is integrated into e-learning platforms in order to perform the role of an online tutor. The system stores into a database personalized information of each student regarding their level of education, their learning progress and their interaction with the platform. This information is then used by the 3D modeled virtual agent to give personalized feedback to each student; the purpose of the agent is to guide the students throughout the lectures taking into account their personal needs and interacting with them by means of verbal and non-verbal communication. To achieve this work a thorough study of natural behaviour has been held and a complex state machine is being developed in order to provide IAAN with the sufficient artificial intelligence as to enhance the students motivation and engagement with the learning process.
