Dynamic Multi Agent System for Revising E-Learning Content Material
|Fatima EL KHOUKHI|
The growth of the information and communication technologies has led to the appearance of new concepts, approach and disciplines. For learners, an e-learning system constitutes rich window to the knowledge. It presents a varied training, including different content material format (video, text, interactive content...) and diverse methods. In order to keep learners’ attention, e-learning system must provide good content's quality, including revised material and updated methods. In this perspective, we have implemented multi-agent system composed of three sort of agents ensuring a permanent revision to the e-learning content. The first one is called Checker Agent (CA). It checks the educational resources, and detects the outdated ones so as to be treated. The second agent is named Search Agent (SA). The task of this one is to look for recent contents and new teaching methods. Whereas, the third agent is called Updater Agent (UA). Its function consists on inserting the retrieved updates corresponding to each content. The communication between these agents is ensured by an XML files. In this paper, we have proposed an implementation of the first part of our system. Namely, the checking process of e-learning curriculum by implementing the CA algorithm. And the integration process by implementing the UA algorithm. As result, the tests and experimentations done in this context have proved the effectiveness of the proposed solution, and revealed positive results both in term of learning process and learners’ feedback.
