ÉpiTalk, un outil générique pour la construction de systèmes conseillers

Abstract : We report on the architecture of a generator for advisor systems. ÉpiTalk is used to construct an advisor component to an existing learning environment or task support system, without disturbing its operation. After a survey of advisory components in knowledge-based learning environments and intelligent tutoring systems, we present implemented examples of such systems based on a previous generic architecture. Then we introduce a new multi-agent framework of a generator of advisor systems called ÉpiTalk. Finally, we outline three ÉpiTalk advisors that have been programmed or are in progress : AGD, a course design engineering workbench, COPERNIC-2, a learning environment on scientific discovery and HYPERGUIDE, a telelearning environement. We end by discussing our results on four aspects : the feasability of such an advisor generator, the versatiliy of the ÉpiTalk generator with regards to the types of advices, its applicability to collaborative work and learning and, finally, the quality of the designer's interface aiming at reducing the programming load.
