With the rapid developments in e-learning and educational systems, updating and redesigning a learning activity is too costly and time-consuming. Web-based educational systems must be designed in order to enable reusing and repurposing of learning activities. As the most adopted framework in e-learning systems offered by ADL, SCORM can help us to reuse previous Content Objects again for developing a new learning activity. On the other hand, Agent-based systems technology has generated lots of excitement in recent years because of its promise as a new paradigm for conceptualizing, designing, and implementing software systems. This promise is particularly attractive for creating software that operates in environments that are distributed and open, such as the Internet and we believe this could be the same for e-learning systems. The components and technologies discussed in the first and second sections constitute the building blocks for the realization of the futuristic vision of the new generation of SCORM conformant e-learning systems, which would allow intelligent access to highly specific and customized learning content by users.
