student centric e learning
Student Centric e-Learning

Goal of Adaptive, Personalised e-Learning:

“to provide e-learning content, activities and collaboration,

adapted to the specific needs and influenced by specific preferences and context of the student,

based on the sound pedagogic strategies”

Adaptive Personalised eLearning

some questions
Some Questions?

What is Adaptive, Personalised eLearning?

What does it offer the learner?

What does it offer the teacher?

How difficult is it to achieve?

Does it need an army of engineers, developers

And subject matter experts?

What record of success does it have?

Adaptive Personalised eLearning

motivation
Motivation
  • ‘One size doesn’t fit all’!
    • Different people have different needs, likes, preferences, skills, abilities
    • Are in different locations, using different devices, With different connectivity
    • Are in different circumstances, using service for different reasons ……
  • Large variety of Users, very variable circumstances, large ‘hyper’space

Adaptive Personalised eLearning

motivation5
Motivation
  • Digital Content very expensive to develop

=> need to ensure re-use

  • Need to automate ‘transformation’ process of digital content - to ensure greater usability

benefits of personalised e learning
Benefits of Personalised e-Learning
  • Pedagogic
    • Improved quality & effectiveness (no two students are identical)
    • Improved Relevancy
    • Reduced cognitive overload, reduced learning time
    • Improve retention
    • Empower learner (take more responsibility, more active participation)

Adaptive Personalised eLearning

benefits of personalised e learning9
Benefits of Personalised e-Learning
  • Management
    • Promote Resource (content) Reuse / Reduced Costs
    • Ability to introduce Multiple courses across same content repository
    • Enable further e-learning opportunities

Adaptive Personalised eLearning

adapting to what
LearnerAdapting to What?
  • Knowledge about the subject
  • Knowledge about the system
  • Goals
  • Interests
  • Culture
  • Language
  • Capabilities
  • (Dis)Abilities
  • Preferences

case study trinity college dublin
Case Study: Trinity College Dublin
  • Engineering Faculty: Dept. of Computer Science
  • 7 Different Degrees
    • Computer Engineering,Computer Science, Info. Technology etc.
  • Various ‘Databases’ courses taught on different degree, to different student years (1st - 4th ), with varying learning objectives & syllabi

Adaptive Personalised eLearning

multi model metadata driven approach
Multi-model, Metadata Driven Approach
  • Metadata to describe Adaptive Resources
  • Multi-model
  • Two versions of the approach
    • 3 Models – Content, Learner and Narrative (PLS)
    • N Models – At least one Narrative, the rest are metadata based (APeLS)
  • User Trial and Feedback

the content model learning objects
The Content Model (Learning Objects)
  • The Content Model must accurately represent the unit of material (a fine grained LO)
  • The model must represent each LO from three perspectives…
    • General Information
    • Pedagogical Information
    • Technical Information

Course Design = Model Design + Learning ObjectAuthoring

  • Development of Models
    • Concept Space (ontological approach)
    • Narrative Model (pedagogic/Instructional design based models) e.g Case Based, Web Quests, Didactic, Learning Spaces etc.
    • Adaptive Property selection
    • Content (Learning Objects)

evaluation
Evaluation
  • APeLS used to deliver RDBMS course to 120 final year students (two degrees)
  • Pre-test instrument for VARK & prior knowledge in DBMS
  • Learners able to rebuild their personalized course via instrumentation
  • Highly popular with student body
  • Continual refinement & re-personalization by student for various reasons

Adaptive Personalised eLearning

student opinions
Student Opinions
  • Very high satisfaction rating of course (87%)
  • All students used the ‘adaptive’ controls to take responsibility for their e-learning
  • 60% satisfied with level of control offered by the ‘adaptive’ controls
  • Some interesting observations
    • frequent student re-personalisation for specific time objective

the story so far
the story so far …
  • Adaptive Hypermedia Services facilitates:
    • graceful enhancement and scalability of content service
    • support multiple courses & learning experiences
    • empower user (learner)
    • interpretative Semantic Web driven approach allows evolution of adaptivity
