RIVERA, Diana C.  and  MACHUCA VILLEGAS, Liliana E.. A virtual assistant architecture to support the delivery of texts in languages teaching - learning processes. Ing. compet. [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.2, pp.155-164. ISSN 0123-3033.

This paper presents the architecture of a Virtual Assistant that supports the delivery of texts in languages teaching-learning processes. Two specific functions for the assistant are defined: writing and grammatical assistance. On one hand, writing assistance provides students recommendations about the type of paragraph that they want to write. And, on the other hand, grammatical assistance provides students a feedback about their mistakes in the texts that they produce. The assistant has features related with three technological elements: i) software agents, ii) virtual learning environments and iii) computational linguistics. These features allow to provide the functionalities for language processing and they provide students' recommendations about their writing processes. The main purpose of this assistant is to help the students to improve their writing skills, when they interact into a virtual learning environment. The proposed architecture was implemented in a platform called Lingweb, wich is a prototype of a Course Management System for the languages teaching-learning processes
