Abstract: This paper presents an agent-based e-learning environment to facilitate learners achieving his learning target. The agent can generate a recommendation sequence to the learner based on Dynamic Fuzzy Petri Net (DFPN). Besides this, we suggest that each course should define the study intensity function to normalise different exercise-grade criteria. In DFPN, each learner should receive different learning suggestions based on evaluation degree of truth of any proposition.

Keywords: agent-based systems; DFPN; dynamic fuzzy Petri nets; multi-agent systems; MAS; e-learning; online learning; electronic learning; recommendation sequences; recommender systems; personalised learning; distance learning; distance education.
