Video is the most widely used format to deliver a lecture by the tutor/lecturer in electronic distance learning. One of the video presentation styles is a dialogue style where the learning material is presented with a dialogue between a tutor/teacher and a tutee student. The presence of the tutee and dialogues provide cues that enable the observer student to pay more attention to the video. However, most video lectures available are in a monologue style. The authors developed a system that transforms a monologue-style lecture video into a dialogue-like video style by adding a synthetic tutee agent. They conducted a within-subject design experiment involving first-year undergraduate students comparing this dialogue-like video style with other two traditional video lecture styles, the monologue, and dialogue styles. The evaluation found that students perceived the dialogues in the dialogue and dialogue-like style supported them to have a better learning experience. The finding indicates that this dialogue-like video style has a comparable effect on the traditional dialogue video.
