As a pre-study for AdeLE (Adaptive e-Learning with Eye Tracking), a research project with the aim to develop and implement a solution framework for personalized adaptive e-learning based on real-time user behaviour, this paper examines the learner-centred aspects of adaptive e-learning and their support in e-learning standards. For this purpose, indicators for adaptation criteria are derived from the learner's characteristics and exemplary adaptive methods for an e-learning environment are introduced. On the basis of these indicators and because of the importance of standardization, the paper points out requirements on e-learning standards to support learner-centred adaptivity. According to these requirements two well-established standards - SCORM and IMS - are examined in order to evaluate its applicability to the AdeLE solution approach.
