THE COLLABORATIVE PROCESS OF DECISION-MAKING IN THE COOLED LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

Abstract

This paper presents decision-making processes and collaboration and coordination mechanisms with the use of an intelligent agent in the CoolED Environment. The CoolED is a collaborative learning environment developed by the LAVI research group at the Federal University of Mato Grosso (UFMT). This system aims to help computer science undergraduate students master the content of Nonlinear Lists, which is a subject of the Data Structuring class, emphasizing insertion, removal and search operations. The group decision-making is made by a leader chosen by the agent and it follows some evaluation criteria stipulated in a leadership model developed on this work. This model allows any user a chance to lead the group at least one work section and respects individual interests on the process of becoming a leader.
