    At present, the success and tenet of modern adaptive e-learning systems is seen in the efficient semantic enrichment of courseware and in advanced personalization techniques. Automatic adaptation steps, though, lead often to personalized navigational elements in learning assets, which in turn may not fulfil a learner need, because this need changes after delivering the asset. Thus, semantic descri... View full abstract»

    As in the knowledge economy life-long learning is becoming the rule, instructional design requires a similar solid base as e.g., bridge engineering. Bridges seldom fall apart thanks to design in accordance with well tested and commonly accepted design rules, based on a even more thoroughly tested and commonly accepted model, namely physics. Given the increasing importance of instructional design (... View full abstract»

    The conception and production of new e-learning content in a corporate environment is expensive and time-consuming. In this paper we propose a content modeling approach as part of an authoring management platform. This platform aims to make the cooperative process of conception and production of e-learning content faster, easier to manage and equips knowledge domain experts with a tool, which does...

    The possibility of transmitting interactive applications along with the audiovisual contents will turn the television into a universal platform to access the information society. Nowadays, there is growing interest in exploiting that potential to develop distance learning policies, to supplement the facilities offered by the current e-learning technologies. This short paper describes the implement... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (173 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Semantics are added to content components through ontological definitions to provide context to learning objects (LOs). Therefore, an ontological contextual environment facilitates knowledge management processes such as reusing, sharing, retrieving and indexing LOs for contextual learning in integrated learning environments. Consequently, contextual LOs from different learning object repositories ... View full abstract»

    This article aims at proposing a flexible and extensible architecture for the context-aware annotation tool MemoNote dedicated to education. For that aim we define the configurations in which MemoNote must be able to adapt to context. The proposed architecture is assessed against scenarios based on these configurations View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (116 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    Previous research has indicated that formal learning activities, such as online courses and face-to-face training are, in many cases, not appropriate for small and medium enterprises (SMEs). Therefore in the European Work and Learn Together project a model for learning in SMEs is being developed that is based on the concept of the community of practice. This paper describes a framework for designi... View full abstract»

    To allow multiple professionals to design and realise together a specific learning object (LO) by using a repository that store and index their several modifications, we need to represent the different steps followed by a LO and its metadata throughout its lifecycle. Here, we study various initiatives related to this issue and notice significant differences between them in the terms of terminology... View full abstract»

    With vigorous development of Internet, especially the Web page interaction technology, distant e-learning has become more and more realistic and popular. Digital courses may consist of many learning units or learning objects and, currently, many learning objects are created according to SCORM standard. It can be seen that, in the near future, a vast amount of SCORM-compliant learning objects will ... View full abstract»

    In previous work, we suggested a model driven approach allowing for tracking and management of both learning objects' usage and content-related activities of users involved in a wide-distributed Web-based learning environment. Here we present an extension of our previous model in order to provide end-users with a personalized search tool. This application recommends learning resources according to... View full abstract»

    With the advent of e-learning, learners are able to repeatedly take quizzes at an opportune juncture. However, there is little research on this style of examination. In this research, a "consistency index", which was defined for a series of answers from repeated attempts of quizzes, was used to classify students into groups. The difference in the structure of the acquired knowledge for each group ... View full abstract»

    This paper starts with an attempt to apply the few principles for determining the size of learning objects (LOs) in the literature to a collection often mainly Dutch successful learning object practices. From this attempt, a more elaborate model is developed in which LO size is jointly determined by three factors: (1) surface learning versus deep learning (2) resources versus LOs that are passed t...

    Learning object repositories intend to endorse reutilization but this purpose has not been fully achieved yet. In this paper, we describe a project addresses the effective reuse of learning objects in repositories. The initial model presented and discussed introduces new requirements in the way contents are stored and searched and in the contextual definition of learning objects. Considering IMS L...

    This paper proposes an adaptive model for automated learning assessment. The proposal is based on a formal model specified through a visual language to assist assessment modeling. On one hand, the proposed model is useful for teachers and content providers to describe the assessment flow in a flexible way. Besides, it describes the scenario for end-user (i.e., student) interactive applications. A ... View full abstract»
