This paper presents an approach to integrating the JADE-based multi-agent system (MAS) with the Modular Object-Oriented Dynamic Learning Environment (Moodle) - an open source learning management system. This approach tries to overcome some shortcomings of Moodle that limit the benefits of Web-based distance learning, from various perspectives such as collaboration and course administration. A prototype of JADE agents for automated forum monitoring demonstrates this approach and shows the feasibility of implementing MAS-supported learning management systems.
