A Multi-Agent Architecture for Peer-Help in a University Course*

  title={A Multi-Agent Architecture for Peer-Help in a University Course*},
  author={Julita Vassileva and Ralph Deters and Jim E. Greer and Gordon I. McCalla and Vivekanandan Kumar and Chhaya Mudgal},
I-Help is an integration of previously developed ARIES Lab tools for peer help to university teaching. In this paper we discuss an approach to distributing the centralised monolithic architecture of I-Help, by using a multi agent-architecture.

The suitability of using CRM to model multi- agent systems is justified by CRM's capacity in catching dynamic features of multi-agent systems in an e-learning environment.
A Method for Implementing Distributed Learning Environments
This paper model a distributed learning software system as a multi-agent system using an open collaborative agent system architecture to increase the functionality and flexibility of the systems and meet the requirements from the resource-oriented nature of distributed learning environments.
This paper describes how to design an e-learning system that not only allows us to capture information about the learners’ interaction but also allow it to be used in different dimensions to support the teachers and the learners in achieving their goals.

A task-centered approach for user modeling in a hypermedia office documentation system
A new architecture for user modeling has been developed which focuses on the tasks performed by users and allows adaptive browsing support for users with different level of experience, and a level of adaptability.
Inspectable User Models for Just-In-Time Workplace Training
Many interesting user modelling issues arise in this work, most importantly employing the same user model in multiple ways, making the user models inspectable by a variety of users, doing knowledge-based matching and retrieval, and maintaining the accuracy of the user model over time.
