    Effectiveness of Facial Animated Avatar and Voice Transformer in eLearning Programming Course



    The advancement in technology brought about the introduction of E-Learning to educational institutes. By supplementing traditional courses with E-Learning materials, instructors are able to introduce new learning methods without completely deviating from standard education programs [Basogain et al. 2017]. Some of the most popular forms of E-Learning include online courses [Aparicio and Bacao 2013], [Goyal 2012], video clips of lectures, and gamification of courses and materials [Plessis 2017]. This paper introduces and evaluates the performance of eLearning videos featuring anime styled avatars (a.k.a VTuber) speaking in vocoder transformed audios and how they compare with the traditional lecturer video
