Design of animated pedagogical agents—A look at their look

Agneta Gulz, Magnus Haake
2006 International Journal of Human-Computer Studies  
A well-established effect of animated agents in educational and other contexts is their potential to motivate and engage.  ...  The main thesis of the paper is that users' visuo-aesthetic experience of animated pedagogical agents is too important with respect to the goals to motivate and engage, to be treated as a secondary issue  ...  The authors would like to thank the two anonymous reviewers for highly valuable comments on a previous version of this paper.  ...
