This paper presents a solution to the problem of the search and retrieval digital tagged content in heterogeneous learning object repositories through architecture for intelligent retrieval of educational content in heterogeneous environments (AIREH) framework. This architecture unifies the search and retrieval of objects, thus facilitating the personalised learning search process by filtering and properly classifying learning objects retrieved for an approach for semantic-aware learning content retrieval based on abstraction layers between the repositories and the search clients. The use of federated databases techniques by using an organisation of agents allows those agents to work in a coordinated manner to solve a common problem, allowing the agents to adapt to the constantly changing environment (users, content repositories, etc.). Combining a complete agent-based architecture that implements the concept of federated search along with IR technologies may help organising and sorting search results in a meaningful way for educational content.
