Abstract: Cultural Heritage encompasses a set of traditions and commodities inherited from our ancestors, and it is vital to convey and preserve them for the next generation. Cultural Multimedia applications and Serious Games form an important pedagogical and didactic medium, mainly for a young demography, which can learn while playing. In this paper is presented an innovative platform, named EI2VA (Engine for Immersive Interaction with Virtual Agents), in which a virtual character, endowed with facial, corporal and behavioural animation can be integrated in multimedia applications. These multimedia applications, derived from the Fala Comigo project, which set the example for a possible use of this technology, preserving the historical and cultural contents indispensable for the users, based on a multi-modality of evident interaction. The resulting multimedia applications were used in a case study conduct with three different user groups (experts and nonexperts) in different settings including classroom, museum and scientific conference.
