Türker, A., Görgün, I., Conlan, O. ‘The challenge of content creation to facilitate personalized eLearning experiences’ in proceedings of the ProLearn-iClass Workshop on Learning Objects in Context, Leuven, Belgium, March 2005, edited by Duval, E.
The runtime creation of pedagogically coherent learning content for an individual
learner’s needs and preferences is a considerable challenge. By selecting and
combining appropriate learning assets into a new learning object such needs and
preferences may be accounted for. However, to assure coherence these objects should
be consumed within pedagogically meaningful learning activity structures. There are a
number of key aspects that need to be addressed in order to perform this kind of
personalization, such as the appropriate modelling of the learner’s needs and
preferences, representation of pedagogical strategies, representation of learning
designs and assets as well as the runtime reconciliation of these elements to produce
effective and coherent learning activities. Moreover, preferences that teachers may
have about the learner’s studies should also be considered. iClass, an Integrated
Project, funded by the European Commission under the auspices of the IST FP6,
addresses this challenge with an innovative and ambitious suite of eLearning services.
This paper introduces iClass and its objectives.
