Abstract

Many projects featuring intelligent virtual agents have emerged in last years, but not many reports on their advances in education. This paper presents the curricula of a university course on Modelling Behaviour of Human and Animal-like Agents, including a seminar in which students develop their own virtual agents using a toolkit we have developed. This course has been also scaled for a workshop with computer science high-school students. An evaluation of the course is presented and main lessons learned overviewed. The paper also explicitly formulates the teaching methodology underpinning the course and outlines several general questions hoping to start a broader discussion on educational issues related to the field of intelligent virtual agents.
