Abstract

Community-based collaborative virtual universities that widely open to anyone who has the will to learn and to share their knowledge with others across the networks have been proposed, which imply the diversity of their users, encompassing the needs of people of all ages, nationalities and ability levels, and consequently cause a language problem in knowledge representation and communication. This paper proposes a multilingual agent and discusses how to design the agent in the context of multi agent paradigm to provide an integrated solution of software agent and virtual environment media technologies, with a demonstration of a prototyping implementation in a MOO (Multi user dimension Object-Oriented) based virtual environment.
