ABSTRACT: With rapid development of information technology, advantages of web-based education like low cost, varied forms, wide popularity and flexibility are showing up. Being able to realize teaching methods which are hard to be realized in traditional means of teaching, web-based education is an ideal means of education in terms of distance education and school teaching. However, it also has such problems as incapability in teaching students according to their aptitude, low level of intelligence, unsatisfactory functions of test and evaluation, lack of effective guidance, lack of advance idea in system design. Application of Agent-based Intelligent Touring System (ITS) in web-based education carves out new space for web-based education research. This article, based on constructivism theory, introduces Agent and constructs an Agent-based web-education system model, along with relevant Agents in this model. Knowledge model is constructed for intelligent and individualized teaching. This article is an initial research on application of Agent in web-based education and provides fundamental base for further research in this field.
