© Springer International Publishing AG 2018. Experiential learning of other cultures not only provides knowledge of the protocols and values of a different culture, but also enables the learner to realize there are such differences. It is this awareness that enables us to better understand our own culture and how we communicate within and between cultures. We are using intelligent agents modelling cultural rituals, values and emotional responses within gaming environments to support the learning of cultural competency. In this chapter, we describe the development of cultural knowledge sharing processes. Starting with information sharing, in class role play and recorded material, we are expanding the interactions and scripting options to allow students to experience the conflicts felt by Aboriginal Australians within the mainstream culture. We analyse the different teaching methods and the suitability of the material.
