Web-base learning environments are strongly driven by information revolution and the Internet, but they have a number of common deficiencies, such as slow access, no adaptivity to individual student, limitation by bandwidth, and so on. This paper outlines the benefits of mobile agents technology, and describes its application in web-based learning environment to improve learning process. Mobile agents technology is being used in the implementation of the TILE adaptation mechanism, which the TILE project aims to provide an integrated system for the management, authoring, delivery and monitoring of education at a distance.
