The contribution presents a planning agent in an adaptive Web-environment for second language terminology learning. This pedagogical agent provides active or passive sequencing and suggests systemlearner dialogue by open learner model. It performs as well task-specific personalized information retrieval of relevant readings. Thesis synopsis. Thesis topic is “Intelligent Agents in Natural Language Processing Applications”. The idea is to design and implement agents in information extraction, retrieval and filtering, and to apply them in a number of projects dealing with language technologies.
