Agent-based systems for human learners

Elizabeth Sklar, Debbie Richards
2010 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
Three types of agents are identified in the literature: pedagogical agents, peerlearning agents, and demonstrating agents.  ...  Features of each type are considered, as well as the systems in which these agents are incorporated, examining common and divergent goals, system and agent architectures, and evaluation methodologies.  ...  A multiagent system (MAS) is a physical or virtual environment in which multiple agents interact with each other, either directly or indirectly.  ...
