This paper presents an application of Chemical Reaction Metaphor (CRM) in agent-based distributed learning systems. The suitability of using CRM to model multi-agent systems is justified by CRM's capacity in catching dynamic features of multi-agent systems in an e-learning environment. A case study in course material updating demonstrates how the CRM based language, Gamma language, can be used to specify the architecture of the learning environment. Finally, a discussion on the implementation of Gamma language in a distributed system is given.
