Animation technologies are used to portray virtual characters as intelligent agents and made to convey data in a conversational manner for many different applications. Current uses of virtual characters include non-player agents in games to online agents helping the user with a friendly design and a functional and operational utility. Other applications include artistic explorations of agency and representation. Teacher avatars are being used to provide simple course instruction. They are also being used as student avatars presenting to teachers models of student behavior for supervised teacher instruction. Our research attempts to use these animated teacher avatars along with annotated video as learning companions in the instruction of language arts.
