Computational Intelligence for Communication and Cooperation Guidance in Adaptive E-Learning Systems

Activity: Talk or presentationOral presentation


Adaptivity has become a prominent research topic during the past decades. There is a variety of application areas where adaptation can add benefit to systems, reaching from shopping portals to e-learning platforms. Despite the large body of work, Computational Intelligence (CI) techniques have been under-explored and there-fore also under-exploited within the area of user-adaptive systems. This paper discusses the potential of employing CI approaches for the im-plementation of adaptivity within e-learning sys-tems. Furthermore, it identifies scenarios where these techniques can improve the performance of an adaptive component. Specific focus is placed on the provision of guidance in e-learning systems, in particular with respect to communica-tion/cooperation (as opposed to traditional focus on guiding learners through learning materials).
