Abstract

In Japan, the "Period of Integrated Study" program for elementary and secondary education emphasizes cultivating students' abilities to cope with various problems in daily life. Most goals of this program involve meta-ability, which cannot be fully learned by traditional Japanese instructional methods. For this reason, it is necessary and important to provide teachers with a powerful help system that can support them in designing instruction for enhancing students' meta-ability. In this paper, we propose a FIMA (Flexible Instructional design support Multi-Agent System) and describe its architecture, which complies with the FIPA specifications.
