This paper presents the implementation and evaluation of ILOMAS, an architectural model designed to select Learning Objects (LO) for e-learning, based on multi-agent systems. The proposed model extends the Intelligent Learning Objects approach through the use of a BDI agent architecture, allowing the communication with the instructional resources that constitute the LO according to the SCORM standard. A prototype implementation is presented to evaluate the proposed model.
