Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5796)


In the article the authors propose a model of an educational social agents collaboration between students, teacher, and an e-learning information system (repository). The system will support the competence-based learning process by means of social network creation in order to exchange ontology in the repository environment. The proposed model consists of three integrated sub models: (i) knowledge management model, (ii) student - e-learning information system - teacher interaction organization model (iii) model for quantity assessment of collaboration.
