Abstract

This paper proposes a design framework of a Virtual Tutee System (VTS) that applies agent technology to improve intrinsic motivation to read. A VTS is a computer-based learning environment in which students become tutors of virtual peers. A VTS capitalizes on the motivational benefits of peer tutoring with additional strategies to support the motivational needs of individual students. The proposed framework provides four design principles and the component guidelines. The paper concludes with an example VTS implementation scenario.
