We presented an agent-based e-learning environment. Our aim was to allow many users to interact collectively and intelligently with the environment. In this cooperation model, human users and artificial agents carry out tasks in the learners’ service. We define the internal structure of our kernel supposed to work within Internet/Intranet settings. Design was structured in three parts: individual learning space, collaborative space, and cooperative space. We advocate the employment of an agent-based approach, a suitable for two main reasons: agents were a natural metaphor of human acts, and the learning systems are generally complex. Prometheus methodology used for the design and emphasis placed on the agent-based features.
