Abstract: Most of the existing E-learning system designs have focused on the development of feature-rich, but usable systems with little effort in motivating students to develop interest in the teaching-learning process. This paper discusses the learner centered design approach for web-based tutoring to motivate young learners using 3D virtual tutors in a requirement-based, flexible pedagogical model. Students can choose course(s) and the study-mode. In the guided mode, the student is mentored by a human tutor, whereas a student in un-guided mode is tutored by 3D avatar. The student has access to study materials, educational videos and applets that are provided by the tutors, the student also has access to forums for doubt clearing and online assignments to be submitted for tutors' evaluation. Tutors can track students' progress using online quiz and reports modules. Further, tutors have access to teaching aids like online chat system and whiteboard-based teaching in a virtual classroom environment. � 2013 IEEE.
