ABEL-GUI: AN AGENT-BASED GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE FOR E-LEARNING

Steffen Kernchen, Fritz Zbrog, Reiner R. Dumke

Abstract

In this paper we present an agent-based graphical user interface (GUI) for the domain of e-Learning: the ABEL-GUI. It is developed following a structured approach for the analysis, specification and design of agentbased graphical user interfaces. Therefore a logical goal/task hierarchy is designed and depicted by a society of agents. By this an implicit partition of the GUI takes shape and gets connected with the particular agents. The result takes benefits from the cooperation idea behind agent technology and focuses on specialization, personalization and interaction support.
