An Agent Based Education Resource Purvey System.
ABSTRACT Most current education organizations use books and CDs as the main media, which takes a long time for knowledge updating between
education resource providers and the users. The rapid development of the Internet has brought with it the possibility of improving
the resource purveying mechanisms. Therefore, we designed an agent based system to purvey education resources from the resource
centre to schools through the Internet. Agent technology helps to improve system performance and flexibility. This paper describes
the design of our system, details the functions of the main parts of the system, shows the communication methods between agents
and finally evaluates the system by experiments.

ABSTRACT: The body of available information is rapidly increasing every day. It is becoming impossible for humans to peruse all the available information and extract the data related to a specific topic. A great deal of important information is being neglected primarily for two major reasons. Firstly, highly relevant information is losing its true meaning within a pool of insignificant and unauthorized information. A lot of available information is published which is of no significance and sometimes may even be destructive and corruptive in nature. Secondly, new knowledge and discoveries are emerging quickly as we continue to progress and new technologies emerge. It is becoming more and more difficult each day to find specific information even within a body of authorized information. As a solution to this problem, humans are designing software agents that will do the search for them. In this chapter, we will discuss agent features such as environment, internal structure, mobility, communication, and cooperative work with other agents.
