A multi-agent architecture for an ITS with multiple strategies
- 126 Downloads
This research aims to implement an intelligent tutoring system with multiple co-operative strategies involving several pedagogical agents (for instance: tutor, co-tutor, companion, ...). Such agents are able to play different pedagogical roles, consequently, we called them actors. We describe a general architecture for actors, and illustrate it in the context of a new strategy: learning by disturbing. A prototype of an environment for building actors has been implemented using an object oriented language; it allows to develop new co-operative pedagogical strategies.
