Computer Based Training can allow convenient and independent learning opportunities in the workplace and classroom. Developing these learning modules to contain content specific to an organisation, however, can be costly and beyond the reach of small companies. For the classroom teacher, development of modules is typically impractical due to time and skill requirements. For a learning environment inhabited by agents, we need a means by which the teacher/trainer can select appropriate agents and tell the agents what to do which also captures the appropriate domain, problem solving and pedagogical knowledge to be transferred to the student. We offer a simple and practical approach which allows training scenarios to be developed and knowledge to be acquired concurrently as the trainer interacts with the system and existing scenarios.
