Designing virtual humans for web-based learning processes
Tutoring by Virtual Humans
The work here summarized was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and was conducted at the University of Duisburg-Essen (UDE) and at the IT+Media Group Baden-Baden under the auspices of the German Aerospace Center (DLR). By integrating recent advances in animation technology with new insights from nonverbal communications research this project aims to set a new standard of excellence for computer-generated characters to be used within a web-based learning environment.
This project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research and by the European Social Fund of the European Union.
