Abstract

This poster presents some design solutions of building a web-based intelligent learning environment, called SMILE Maker. It accumulates some of the individual constructs such as learning styles, problem solving styles, learning locus ofcontrol and level of prior knowledge. The design approach takes into account the large number and different levels of individual constructs, their instability over time, spice and task, and the challenge to develop more style's versatility and flexibility. There are four scenarios metaphorically called Ready-made, Tailor-made, Self-made, and Atelier, available for a selection. Each scenario presents the content within a specific pattern of four learning events - explanation, procedures, examples and practice. SMILE Maker builds up a dynamic individual profile of a learner. It identifies learning styles explicitly or draws an inference implicitly about locus of control, prior knowledge and problem solving styles. A special functionality, called Facilitator, prompts some suggestions according to the behaviour of a learner
