Abstract

In this paper, we present the initial results of research that is still ongoing in building metacognitive and motivation tutor, a pedagogical agent used to facilitate students in blended learning in a higher education context. The MeMo Tutor, which stands for “Metacognitive and Motivation Tutor”, is a pedagogical agent in the form of a conversational agent that integrated into the Moodle Learning Management System. The metacognitive and motivation tutor aims to provide feedback to students using an integration of metacognitive scaffolding and motivation scaffolding. The main objective of the pedagogical agent is to maintain and enhance student engagement and motivation in blended-learning environment. This paper presents the first results in ongoing research efforts. In this work, we attempt to design the components of the proposed pedagogical agent, consisting of a learning environment, character design, and system architecture.
