Abstract

The purpose of this study was to operationalize, develop, and validate three distinct pedagogical agent roles: Expert, Motivator, and Mentor. The three agent roles were operationalized in terms of image, animation, voice, script, and affect. Two validation experiments with different student populations examined the learners' perception on the agent roles as implemented. The participants included 78 undergraduates in a computer literacy course and 72 pre-service teachers in an introductory educational technology course. The results support the effectiveness of each of the three agent role instantiations.
