This is an interesting description of a semi-automated simulation used to teacher teachers. The trainee enters the room as an avatar and attempts to teach, while behind the scenes a facilitator operates five student avatars, generating responses and orchestrating body language. It's an interesting idea, and part of the idea of course is that the technology is pushing the cost down while creating an experience that would previously have been possible only with real students or actors.
