This demo is showing a virtual learning environment aimed at supporting societal participation learning for low-literates and non-native migrants in the Netherlands. In this environment, users can select one of 4 scenarios: prototypical situations about participating in Dutch society, involving information and communication skills used in both formal and informal social settings. These scenarios are:
- Online banking.
- Grocery shopping.
- Service desk.
- Video chatting.
All scenarios make use of embodied conversational agents (ECAs). These ECAs have one of two roles: they either conduct conversations with the user, or support the user in doing participation exercises.
