The focus of multimedia education system has increased lately. In this paper, we will first explain an error detection-recovery agent for multimedia distance education system based on RCSM (Reconfigurable Context-Sensitive Middleware). DOORAE is a good example for developing multimedia distance education system based on RCSM between students and teachers during lecture. The development of multimedia computers and communication techniques has made it possible for a mind to be transmitted from a teacher to a student in distance environment. This method detects error by using process database periodically to find some error based on RCSM. If error is found, this paper took the first steps towards learning to coordinate actions in multi-agent systems based on RCSM for classifying the type of errors. If an error is to be recovered, this system uses the same method as it creates a session. EDRA_RCSM is a system that is suitable for detecting and recovering software error for multimedia distance education system based on RCSM by using software techniques.
