Training My-Dragon: Using educational agents to facilitate student learning

Zhi Hong Chen, Chia Chi Yeh

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

In this paper we develop a My-Dragon system, in which students not only learn Chinese idioms, but also train their pet dragons through learning by demonstration. More specifically, students need to demonstrate correct procedure and answers for their dragons so that their knowledge can be improved. By doing so, students not only can be engaged in a game-based learning context, but they are offered more opportunities to master their subject domains. This is a work-in-progress study and the current status and future work are described in this paper, too.
