Abstract

There are two types of e-Learning systems, namely, a synchronous type system and an asynchronous type system. Interactive communications with a teacher are important for education. However, an asynchronous, lecture type e-Learning system has some difficulty for keeping students' motivation and encouraging active learning. In this paper, we introduce a human-like e-Learning system based on machine learning techniques. This system has 3 kinds of subsystem. The fist is the detection of students' situation by patterning. The second is the automatic question answering. The third is to generate facial expressions of animations synchronized with pre-recorded audio data. Our human-like e-Learning system provides experimental contents for active learning and communicative functions such as chat. As a result, students can learn with a pleasant feeling.
