AutoTutor includes conversational pedagogical agents that motivate and navigate the learner through learning lessons and activities. It is an intelligent tutoring system on the web that delivers comprehension instruction. The system includes adaptive conversational trialogues with two animated conversational agents (teacher and student) that interact with the adult learner in each AutoTutor lesson. The curriculum has 35 lessons with trialogues that cover specific comprehension strategies. The strategies are aligned with our PACES intervention. The system collects student performance on each item within each lesson for use by the students’ teachers.
