Abstract

In today's education it is becoming normal to talk about virtual learning, online and at a distance. Such environments are incorporated daily attendance practices that know, greatly enriching, with the potential of media and technology, educational opportunities in all areas, this paper explains how to implement the use of multi-agents. It will discuss how the curriculum can be enriched by activities involving problem-based learning, case studies simulations and virtual reality. This new model provides multiple uses for exploring knowledge and supporting learning-by-doing. It engages users in the construction of knowledge, collaboration, and articulation of knowledge in a virtual environment, especially in the teaching - learning.
