Agent-Based Approach to e-Learning: An Architectural Framework
The World Wide Web (WWW) provides new opportunities for online education on the Internet. With other network tools being applied to the Web, it can create a virtual learning environment to bring together a community of learners for interactive education. Based on the investigation of the use of agent-based approach to e-Learning, this paper shares our views on how to develop an architecture framework to apply the electronic education on the Internet in an effective way.
