2012_06_ITS - The Interaction Behavior of Agents’ Emotional Support and Competency on Learner Outcomes and Perceptions

User documentation

Abstract: Pedagogical agents, visual ‘tutor’ representations embedded within computer-based learning environments, exhibit lifelike appearance, persona, and social characteristics in an attempt to establish an ideal learner-agent relationship. This article reports on a study to assess the impact and interaction behavior of a pedagogical agent’s emotional support and competency on learner’s self-efficacy, performance, and agent perceptions (i.e., perceived intelligence and trust of the agent).
