Abstract

It is postulated that one of the main problems with e-learning environments is their lack of personalisation. This paper presents a comprehensive review of the current work in the field and proposes a framework for research in promoting personalisation in web-based learning environments. We review the concepts of adaptability and adaptivity and discuss the limitations of completely adaptive systems. We highlight the different problems and inconsistencies of trying to completely automate the adaptation process to students profiles and propose the conception of more interactive environments that are both adaptable and adaptive which can assist the teacher in making interesting pedagogical decisions while tutoring in a virtual environment. We propose the framework as one that promotes an environment where authentic learning activities can be proposed, personalised and carried out by the students supported by the teacher and a semi-autonomous agent.
