The design and development of an adaptive web-based learning system

Abstract

Currently, most web-based learning systems do not differentiate the content materials presented to the various types of learners. Content adaptation is a concept inspired by enabling dynamic presentation generation based on the learner's preferences, e.g. knowledge level, gender, age, language, or past visits. The goal of content adaption is to take the heterogeneous and changing needs of the learners into account and thus to provide the most appropriate contents and the best learning satisfaction. To handle content adaptation and dynamic presentation generation, an XML-based content description mechanism called ADAM is proposed in this paper. ADAM's goal is to enhance learning effectiveness through providing the most appropriate materials under changing learners' requirements and preferences while simplifying the process of presentation composition.
