Abstract

The term Adaptive E-learning System (AES) refers to the set of techniques and approaches that are combined together to offer online courses to the learners with the aim of providing customized resources and interfaces. Most of these systems focus on adaptive contents which are generated to the learners without considering the learning styles of the learners. Learning style of the learner defines the way of learning the contents. The system should not only meet the individual need of the contents but also the customized user interface on the portal. Hence, an AES should mainly focus on recommending learning contents with Adaptive User Interface (AUI) on the portal. The work in the paper proposes a generic approach to provide the learning contents with AUI components based on the learning styles of the learners. The learning style adopted for the work is the Felder-Silverman Learning Style Model (FSLSM). The proposed approach defines generic rules which are generated automatically for any online course with the adaptive contents. Also, the approach takes care of new learners by providing learning path as a user interface component on the portal. The experiment has been conducted on engineering students for a particular online course. The portal is validated using parameters of usability testing by generating test cases and statistical analysis has been carried out to identify the impact of AUI components on the learning process. The result shows the well adaptation of user interface components and contents based on learning styles.
