Agora UCS: Ubiquitous Collaborative Space

Abstract : Agora UCS is a new architecture designed for distributed learning as a side effect of communication and collaboration. This architecture aims to achieve (i) ubiquity (time and space independent access by community members); (ii) immanence (full internal control of the destiny of the community) and (iii) multi-modal communication (reinforcing the interactions between the members of the community). The theoretical model underlying Agora UCS is inspired by an integration of agents and Grid concepts (AGIL). Agora UCS has been experimented by a dozen of communities, which represent alltogether about seventy members. We achieved quite promising results in terms of motivation and collective performances .
