Project Title: Avatar-Mediated Interaction
Project Description:

This project involves extending technologies and applications of the Avatar-Mediated Interactive Training and Individualized Experience System (AMITIES). AMITIES combines game engine, network and user interaction technologies, and an after-action review system to provide experiences that give users the sense of “being there,” while simultaneously capturing objective quantitative data, and ebling subjective tagging so events can be reviewed by researchers (data alysis), coaches (debriefing) and users (reflection). Current applications of AMITIES include the TeachLivE project that allows prospective and in-service teachers the opportunity to rehearse their classroom skills. We also address skills training in job interview, de-escalation and social interaction.
