This paper introduces our approach to apply synthetic characters to behavior training in primary schools. Project groups include research centers from UK, Portugal, and China. Research members include artificial intelligent group, graphical group, educational group and psychological group. 24 months co-operation work and 4 meetings exchanging idea proof plentiful and substantial results. A closer link between China and EU countries in use of 3D interactive graphic environments in e-Learning has been established. Investigate results of synthetic characters in Potential Virtual Environments (PSE) is achieved from students' bullying phenomena, empathy change theory, In addition, the open source movement of designing synthetic characters has been launched. Both Asia IT&C committee and project groups are looking forward to new results. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2005.
