Abstract

This paper presents a systems approach to facilitate effective learning object acquisition through the use of communications, modeling, and the agent metaphor. By changing the emphasis that is usually placed on metadata creation and interpretation (which can be problematic) we instead focus on the pragmatics of end use data facilitated through agent negotiation.
