The paper presents a structure for using intelligent multi-agents architecture for an educational system and internet teaching. In this architecture, a model of multi-agents learning environments consists of: the domain model, the communication model and the user model. They contain all the domain knowledge of the target application and the user's profiles. Re-conceptualizing the computer as a constructionist medium increases the computer's educational value by allowing the development and support of communities of users. The communication model facilitates communication via more conventional media, but also enables the communication of ideas through the creation and sharing of computational objects (e.g. agents and analysis tools).
