ADAPTIVE ONLINE TEACHING MATERIALS FOR INTERNET, INTRANET AND MOBILE DEVICES FOR MCUC STUDENTS

D. Balaji, J. Akbar Ali, B. Malathi

Abstract

Academicians in this Information age are trying different teaching methods for the effective learning by different background students. Online teaching method is not only effective for distance learning but also for teaching in a traditional method through intranet. Since MCUC has WLAN, allowing the students to access online materials through mobile devices with in college premises and also through internet it can be accessed anywhere and anytime. Since different program students are using laptops, PDA's and mobile phones to access these information's it is necessary to provide personalised experience for their convenience while learning through showing the frequently accessed links or arranging the links based on the accessibility or listing the links as per the students preference using Adaptive Navigation Support technique. We also tried to use different methods to improve the performance of the website and reduce the development cost.
