SOFTWARE-AGENT ARCHITECTURE FOR INTERACTIVE E-LEARNING

Shaikh Mostafa Al Masum, Mitsuru Ishizuka

Abstract

Many universities worldwide have developed a variety of web-based e-learning environments, hoping to benefit from this new and fast spreading IT (Harasim, 2000). The main intention of this paper is to describe an e-learning model that would act as a prudent teacher to teach and test the aptitude of e-learners based on available knowledgebase. Here, we provide an overall view of the proposed model and then describe in brief about the purposes of different components of the model. This paper provides a visualization model named Web Online Force-Directed Animated Visualization (WebOFDAV) (Huang, et al, 1998) and also points out the implementation issues. The proposed model is designed to be compatible with any e-learning module designed according to the guideline mentioned in this paper.
