AbstractMost traditional computer based learning systems lack to provide adaptive teaching, suitable to each student. Distance Education Systems must support as much as possible the problems caused by the physical distance among teacher and students. This claims for more efficient mechanisms of adaptability and assistance in problemsolving processes. The system must perform some teacher&apos;s role as much as possible. Recent advances in Intelligent Teaching Systems have proposed the use of Artificial Intelligence through architectures based on agents&apos; societies. Teaching systems based on Multi-Agent architectures make possible to support the development of more interactive and adaptable systems. The objective of this paper is to discuss the feasibility of implementing Distributed Intelligent Learning Environment -- DILE based on the Multi-Agents Architecture approach, aiming at the achievement of human resources qualification through Virtual Training. Besides, we present a proposal of an architecture named JADE - Java Agent Framework for Distance Learning Environments.
