Abstract: This paper describes a user modelling agent for a web-based learning system that provides personalised and secure interaction with its users (learners). The system involves user modelling in order to provide tutoring that is dynamically tailored to the individual learner’s needs. It constantly observes the user silently and processes the observations so that it may generate hypotheses about the user’s level of domain knowledge, current goals and possible problems. Personalised Web-based learning requires the gathering of a lot of personal data concerning the user and thus security and privacy issues are raised. Information about the user is maintained centrally on a User modelling Server and concerns each individual learner. Each user model is available to any client application of the system that requests it through Web Services. PKI and WS-security technologies have been used in order to embed security in the F-SMILE system and offer basic security services.
