    This paper describes a possible application of swarm intelligence techniques in e-learning: an auditing tool for pedagogical planning. Swarm intelligence techniques can be applied to a web system thanks to the fact that the available online material can be organized in a graph by means of hyperlinks. In this case, the swarm that moves on the graph is composed of students who unconsciously leave pheromones in the environment depending on their success or failure. The paper presents the system and shows its capacity to serve as an auditing tool for courses designed by a pedagogical team.
