Adaptive Learning by Using SCOs Metadata
InSITE 2007 • Volume 7 • 2007
This paper presents an adaptation scenario for tailoring instructional content towards individual learner characteristics taking into consideration his/her learning style type and subject matter motivation level. Learning resources are organized through shareable content objects (SCOs) - a small digital chunks of knowledge, independent and self described pieces of instructional material delivered via Learning Management System (LMS). We use an ontology based student model for storing student information. The scenario of designing lesson content is presented as a cross section of learning style and motivation level, based on the learning object’s educational metadata. Adaptation is made through discovering those SCO’s whose educational category metadata implies that SCO is to be delivered for the learning style of user. Our future work will be to provide experiment and to test our proposed guidelines in order to get feedback on how learners see the adaptive learning environments tailored to their individual learning style and motivation characteristics.
