This paper proposes a multi-agent system to aid in the formation of collaborative learning groups. Collaboration leads to positive results when group members build knowledge together, acquire skills, resolve conflicts and articulate with each others interpersonal skills. Group formation without carefully chosen criteria often causes problems such as the disproportional distribution of individuals as well as lack of motivation and growing resistance towards group work. The proposed technological model was designed using Prometheus methodology and JaCaMo framework. The obtained experimental results are promising, especially regarding the formation of higher performance groups in collaborative learning contexts.
