Intellitar, a Huntsville, AL technology firm, is working to digitally "clone" educators to make them more accessible to students. The technology uses an image of the teacher or expert to build a moving, talking avatar. The individual then populates the ‘brain’ of the avatar by inputting information or linking to reliable internet based sources. Students can interact with the resulting digital clone, or Intellitar.

Want to see an Intellitar teacher in action? Ms. Remus, a chemistry teacher at Sparkman High School in Alabama, is currently developing hers. Although her Intellitar is still in development and not completely populated, you can interact with her and get an idea of how students will benefit from having this tool at their finger tips! Go ahead and ask a few questions. If the brain has not yet been populated with that information, she’ll let you know.
