Designing Distributed Learning Environments with Intelligent Software Agents reports on the most recent, important advances in agent technologies for distributed learning. Several chapters will be devoted to various aspects of intelligent software agents in distributed learning, including the methodological and technical issues on where and how intelligent agents can contribute to meeting distributed learning needs today and tomorrow. It will benefit the Al (artificial intelligence) community and educational community in their research and development. It will propose some new and interesting research issues about developing distributed learning environments in the semantic Web age. In addition, the ideas presented in the book may also be applicable to other domains such as agent-supported Web services, distributed business process and resource integration, computer-supported collaborative work (CSCW) and e-commerce.
