In a virtual world environment, mediated immersion can be important in enhancing students' engagement in learning. This paper describes the study of agent-mediated immersion in a virtual world called Chronicles of Virtual Singapura that seeks to promote students' science learning. The results of an empirical study provide us some evidences that the agent-mediated immersion could have positive effects on students' science learning, especially to those with less prior domain knowledge.
