Personal profile

Research Interests

To construct intelligent pedagogical agents that draw on sophisticated artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and various highly interactive animation systems (e.g. the Web, VR/AR/XR) to support both social and cognitive interactions by providing adaptive learning paths and learning activities to cyber learner. To investigate how such agents can work together with human teachers in interacting and supporting cyber learners; and How to incorporate appropriate pedagogies and learning theories into such agents to increase learning (i.e., cognitive gains) while also improving motivation and student engagement.
