To tackle the compromise between simple group activity design and complex adaptive group interaction, the following project decisions were adopted in the development: (i) an explicit representation, using ontologies, of the knowledge that describes the domain, student and group activity models, including their relationship, (ii) the use of a multi-level control process to increase the flexibility of the behavior without sacrificing the specification simplicity, (iii) the use of an expressive formalism, Object Petri Nets (OPN) [25], to specify the group interaction protocols.
