Abstract

There are many adaptive educational systems. These systems depend mainly on the student model that stores information related to the student, including the level of knowledge the student has in concepts, Domain model which organizes the sequence and the structure of the educational materials, and also the adaptation model which performs the adaptation paln. Some of these systems use in its functions additional tools such as chat rooms. The problem of the chat rooms in these systems that they present the participants either students or teachers in the same format. Since the majority of students in open education do not know each other personally because they don't attend traditional class, it is impossible to identify the most appropriate peer to discuss the concept with. Therefore, all students will discuss directly with the teacher about the concept, causing high pressure on the teacher prevented him from answering all inquiries of the students and thus lose a lot of the students their chance of discussion. Through this paper we present a model to solve this problem. Model depends mainly on the student model and domain model to arrange the students with different colors within the chat room. These colors indicate the level of knowledge of the student participate in the chat room, and thus show in better way the most appropriate peer for discussion with him about the concept. This will distribute the discussion within the chat room among students and reduce the strain on the teacher. The model depends on a variety of smart agents to perform the function required. 1) Adaptation agent 2) Interface and 3) monitoring agent.
