The ability of Web-based education systems to adapt to individual learners' requirements has been enhanced by the adoption of multi-agent technology. We have developed a novel multi-agent system, which incorporates learning objects, and is based upon a learning style theory as the pedagogic foundation for its adaptivity. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of the system, and discuss some of the research issues.
