Adaptive learning and teaching strategies are increasingly demanded in order to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the education process, but few adaptive tutoring systems exist which satisfy individual students' requirements. We have developed a novel use of agent technology using autonomous agents to address the key functions of intelligent tutoring systems, which uses learning style schemes to adapt to students individual needs, and which supports the use of learning objects. The incorporation of agents and learning objects is based on learning style a pedagogic foundation for adaptivity, and this is one of the contributions of the research. Several case studies have been applied to the system, and a prototype of the agent is implemented.
