In this paper we describe how to design a very simple tutor for Computer Assisted Instruction. In this work we adopted the basic ideas from the Belief Desire Intentions architecture and we implemented a simple model for the affective state of the avatar. The framework comprehends a simple model for personality, for the mood and for emotions and expressions. We set this architecture on the already existing architecture of MAUI (Lisetti [3]). For the graphics we used Haptek technologies. We will describe our approach for the mind and the body of the avatar. We will then discuss some results we found and talk about some possible future works.
