In this paper, we present a novel framework for asyn chronous WBT. The proposed system has two distinguish ing features. Firstly, it is based on P2P architecture for scal ability and robustness. Secondly, all contents in the sys tem are not only data but also agents so that they can mark user's answers, tell the correct answers, and show some ex tra information without human instruction. We also present a prototype implementation of the proposed system on Ma glog that is a Prolog-based framework for building mobile multi-agent systems we have developed. Performance sim ulations demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed sys tem.
