Source: Pondicherry Engineering College
The advancement in internet and multimedia technologies with years of constant progress in developing software tools to support education have reshaped the way knowledge is delivered allowing E-learning to emerge as a solution to conventional learning methods. It has turned out that the learning process can significantly be improved if the learning content is specifically adapted to individual learners' preferences, learning progress and needs. The complexity of evaluating highly interactive e-learning environment has become an issue that is being addressed by educational developers. The main objective of the paper is to incorporate agent technology to enhance the effectiveness of e-learning system. Software agents have a great potential for supporting learning processes that target and deliver learning materials to learners.
