PERSPECTIVES AND ASPECTS IN POEML - Supporting Adaptation in Learning Processes

Manuel Caeiro, Luis Anido, Martin Llamas

Abstract

Adaptation is a key feature of e-learning systems. The educational process performed by the support of elearning systems should be carried out taking into account the cognitive and other particular characteristics of the students, of the teachers and of the environments. However, this adaptation is not a simple process. It implies the conjunction of technical and pedagogical issues. This paper introduces a solution to support adaptation in the context of an Educational Modeling Languages (EML). EMLs have been conceived to allow us the modeling of learning units, enabling the expression of different pedagogical approaches. Eventually, these models are intended to control and support the development of the corresponding learning units.
