Abstract

This paper examines the use of a pedagogical agent to help learners develop their electronic portfolio. Our pedagogical agent is Penelope: a "virtual human", who is characterized by reasoning, reactivity, and emotion. She converses via text with students on matters concerning the design and development of their electronic portfolio. Our contribution to the current literature is twofold. First, the rising use of electronic portfolios demands tools to support and motivate learners. Second, the use of pedagogical agents may prove beneficial in the development of electronic portfolios, but has not yet been exploited.
