AELM: “Workshop on Adaptive E-Learning and Metadata“

Personalized e-learning and adaptive learning environments extend e-learning technology to individual learners and learner groups, allow re-use of learning materials in different contexts, and provide individual learning experiences in an e-learning context.

The creation of effective and efficient learning environments that on the one hand maximize the learning success of students by tailoring the learning process to the individual learner's needs, goals or knowledge, and on the other hand provide flexible and easy-to-maintain platforms for course designers / teachers to compile a course (authoring, reuse, etc) is a key issue for future, personalized learning. This workshop intends to bring together researchers from various communities like information systems, knowledge representation, information retrieval, e-learning, personalization and education to discuss and envision solutions for future e-learning. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Business models for the exchange of learning objects

  • P2P based e-learning

  • Metadata, metadata schemas and conceptual models for e-learning

  • IR and text classification methods in open learning environments

  • Communication between (personalized) e-learning systems on the web

  • Personalization strategies for open learning environments

  • Collaboration strategies for developing courses / course materials

  • Intelligent monitoring of web-based classes and courses

  • Authoring tools for developing adaptive and intelligent educational systems on the web

  • Empirical studies of web-based adaptive and intelligent educational systems 

  • Educational models for personalized learning environments

  • Future trends and perspectives
