Abstract

We have developed some projects [1,2] for addressing the heterogeneity problem in open learning management systems (LMS). In [3], an independent adaptation platform to support competences development through personalization is presented. Three user characteristics (competences profile, learning style, and accessing context) are modeled by means of analyzing user interaction data in a LMS. This process is supported by the assigment of independent adaptation tasks to different JADE intelligent agents. In this paper we introduce some negotiation strategies among those intelligent agents in order to: 1) select the best types of adaptation through collaborative tasks, and 2) generate standards and exchangeable user profiles based on the inferred user characteristics, describing the mechanisms to mobilize these profiles between different LMSs. These profiles support the generation of specifics learning designs for each particular user.
