Virtual Learning Spaces in the Web: An Agent-Based Architecture of Personalized Collaborative Learning Environment.
Nunez Esquer, Gustavo; Sheremetov, Leonid
This paper reports on the results and future research work within the paradigm of Configurable Collaborative Distance Learning, called Espacios Virtuales de Apredizaje (EVA). The paper focuses on: (1) description of the main concepts, including virtual learning spaces for knowledge, collaboration, consulting, and experimentation, a "multi-book" (i.e., a personalized electronic book), and use of agent-based tools; (2) agents in EVA, including the multi-agent environment of personal education (e.g., Internet and filtering, collaboration, personal advisor, evaluator, and group monitor agents), multi-agent planning, and agents for virtual laboratories; (3) a unifying framework for agents in EVA, including the Agent Communication Channel Router, Agent Management System, and Directory Facilitator; and (5) the LAN/ATM (Local Area Network/Asynchronous Transfer Mode) hardware platform developed for the EVA environment. (Contains 23 references.) (MES)
