Virtual Eve - future teacher

Virtual Eve is an avatar that is linked to a web cam mounted on the screen that the student is facing. Software interprets the facial expressions of the students and prompts the avatar to react appropriately to these affective, non-verbal cues.

The header of this posting is linked to a YouTube video of Eve in action. If you click on the "more information" words to the right of the YT video, you will get a more full expanation of the project - describing what may become an online teacher of the future.
