Abstract

We are developing a virtual learning environment, which includes a math game with a teachable agent, the embodiment of the agent, and a social conversation with the agent. In this work we are using various methods for design and system development, with a focus on iterative methods, and high involvement of the user in the process. In this paper we discuss the motivation for and the applications of these methods in the development of the social conversation with the agent.
