  • 1. Session 1166 June 19, 2006 ASEE Annual Conference & Exposition 2006 Development of Online Multimedia based Prototype e-Lecture Interface using Human-like Animated Pedagogical Agents for Effective Dissemination of the Finite Element Method Joseph J. Rencis * , Javed Alam ** Seshadhar V. Aluri * * University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, Arkansas. ** Youngstown State University, Ohio.
  • 2. Outline
  • 3. Goals
    • Develop interactive prototype e-Lecture interface using Animated Pedagogical Agent called Mr. FEMur for teaching finite element method.
    • Integrate e-Lectures into FEML, that is a part of bigger effort to develop the FEMur website.
  • 4. e-Learning Review Represents Virtualized Version of Traditional Lectures e-Book Numerical & Computational Tools Replaces Traditional Tests Imitates Real Life Problems
  • 5. e-Learning Review
  • 6. e-Lecture Interface
      • Standard e-Lecture Formats
  • 7. e-Lecture Interface
      • Common Creation Tools
  • 8. Challenges of Common e-Lecture Creation Tools
  • 9. Animated Pedagogical Agents (APA)
    • Computer Generated Animated Characters
    • Pedagogical - Designed to Teach
    • Agents – Represent or Act
    • Influence of APA on Student Learning
      • Grasping Attention – Concentration is Not Lost
      • Subject Retention – Audio and Visual Presentation of Subject Matter
      • Motivation
  • 10. APA Usage in Engineering Education
  • 11. e-Lecture Creation
  • 12. e-Lecture Creation Process
  • 13. Prototype e-Lecture Click Here
  • 14. Sample Slide of e-Lecture
  • 15. Conclusion
      • A prototype e-Lecture was developed with a human-like animated pedagogical agent for e-Learning of finite element method.
      • Various pedagogical agents developed for Engineering Education were compared and the influence of animated pedagogical agents on student learning was also discussed.
      • This approach demonstrates that more expressive and engaging e-Lectures can be created, that overcome the existing challenges addressed in this presentation .
  • 16. Future Work
    • More e-Lectures will be created on various concepts used for teaching and learning finite element method using this approach.

  • 19. e-Learning Review
    • What is e-Learning?
      • Computer Mediated Learning
      • Mapping of Traditional Teaching and Learning Practices to the Virtual Learning Environment
      • Follows Constructivist Approach – Student Centered
