Adaptive Learning Framework

ALEF is adaptive web-based educational system built on three basic principles:

  1. semantic representation of learning domain,
  2. extensible personalization and course adaptation, and
  3. student active participation and collaboration during learning.

ALEF assembles legacy personalization techniques (adaptive navigation, tailored course presentation) with Web 2.0 key concepts (tagging, sharing, organizing the knowledge) in order to improve student performance and learning experience.

We shift traditional "one-size-fits-all" learning towards collaborative learning personalized according to user actual knowledge obtained by tracking and inferring from student's actions within the system (based on explicit and implicit feedback) and teacher defined learning goals.
