Abstract

This article discusses the agentification of coordination and control of a collaborative pedagogical device. It presents the advantage of a multi-agent system to instrument some features of a collaborative educational device and describes its implementation in the context of a pedagogical engineering studio. The article interests at first in the context of insertion of the device: why and how the MAETIC device is proposed to work out vocational skills training with ICT. The article then describes the function of the MACCADAM studio and the specific devices it generates. It then presents the benefits of a multi-agent system in this context and described the monitoring system proposed for the management of the actors. The article ends on the progress of work and the prospects so far.
