Quoted from the article:
- "Pedagogical agents produced a small but significant effect on learning."
- "Gender bias affects learner’s perception on virtual agent. Implications are discussed in terms of how stereotypes of expert-like and peer-like agent can be effectively utilized"
- "Students who viewed a highly embodied agent also rated the social attributes of the agent more positively than did students who viewed a nongesturing agent."
So - students get more out of agents that act like people, but that isn't always a positive thing.
