This paper presents the subsystem developed under the EUME project to integrate the EUME environment, an Intelligent Learning Management System aimed to support classroom activities, with the BSCW, a \'shared workspace\' system which enables collaboration over the Web. This subsystem allows the EUME multi-agent system to send information to, and get feedback from, the BSCW client-server system by means of a XML-RPC based communication. The motivation behind this integration stems from the need to improve the learning process initiated in the classroom with an infrastructure supporting follow-on activities based on cooperative work between remote students.
