Enspire Learning. It is better to have one “expert” avatar and another “motivational” avatar in a learning environment rather than having one combined “mentor” avatar. Baylor and Kim (2005) report that in multiple studies with avatars of different gender and race, evidence indicates that students learned significantly more and had significantly greater motivation when working with one motivator and a different expert avatar as compared to working with the just the one mentor avatar.
