The acceptance of animation technologies is increasing. Video games, such as Sony PlayStation (SONY, 2002), have become part of the culture for young people from kindergarten through undergraduate school. Animation technologies have been implemented into educational systems in the form of animated pedagogical agents (Johnson, 2000). The research described in this paper aims to take advantage of this widespread acceptance of animation technologies by introducing animated pedagogical agents as teachers in an adaptive instruction environment called Adam. Discussion includes the system's architecture, instruction creation, and instruction delivery. (Author/AEF)
