In this paper we present a technological framework that allows virtual cognitive agents and humans using a web interface to participate in the same electronic institution (eI). Given that the main objective of this framework is to perform experiments on the use of reputation we also introduce the notion of reputation within the eI to incorporate the circulation of opinions about other agents towards certain actions and we extend the actual eI infrastructure to permit BDI agents to participate in an eI.
