Abstract: This paper presents an architecture for developing adaptive e-learning systems using intelligent agent technology and Web Services (WS) technology. Intelligent software agents are designed for supporting users to accomplish knowledge-intensive tasks. WS are designed for the integration of distributed knowledge and information resources and exposed as standard services using widely accepted protocols. In particular, the Domain Model Ontology in the architecture can be shared between applications in the Semantic Web setting for reuse and interoperability. To demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed approach, we implement a prototype of a programme planning and scheduling system for adaptive e-learning.
