Abstract

The chapter focuses on the modeling of software agents that present the performance and functionality needed for supporting collaborative learning, where collaboration is based on the social construction of knowledge, implementing the theory of knowledge creation by Nonaka and Takeuchi (1995). The chapter includes a discussion on the requirements for modeling software agents for learning environments, as well as the use of AI techniques for their implementation. The HCI issues of group configuration and awareness based on learner modeling in web-based environments are also discussed.
