In this paper we present a design case study exemplifying the implementation of the core specification of an adaptation pattern (input, rules, model and output) on the basis of using tools compliant to the IMS-LD modeling language. Research on collaborative learning has emphasized the need for providing flexible yet supportive tools to teachers in order to design collaborative learning tasks. In our work we present a next step in our pattern-based approach demonstrating how educators' ideas can provide the basis for adaptation patterns which, in turn, can be implemented using IMS-LD. We analyze what is necessary for implementing an adaptation pattern and discuss the benefits of the pattern-based approach. Finally, we highlight what would be important issues toward integrating the adaptation pattern capabilities in LD compliant tools for collaborative learning design.
