The potential value of Multi-User Virtual Environments (MUVEs) is increasing amongst educationalists. A key issue with MUVE for education is the need to provide system intelligence and believable characters so that the learning goals may be monitored and achieved. Agent-technology offers solutions towards achieving these needs. In this chapter, the authors explore numerous existing educational MUVE and the use of agents for pedagogy in general, as they pave the way forward for delivering intelligent educational MUVE.
