One important aim of LeGE-WG is the integration of new eLearning methodologies into Learning Grid technology. A central issue in these new eLearning methodologies is the concept of individualised and personalised learning to be realised by adaptive tutoring systems. The adaptivity of such systems goes far beyond adapting to the users’ preferences with respect to the user interface; in co-operation between computer science, psychology, and pedagogy, systems adapting, e.g., to the individual learners’ current knowledge, cultural background, learning style, or special needs are developed.
Adaptive tutoring systems can be integrated into a Learning Grid at different levels of ambitiousness. We will discuss these different levels of integration based on our prior experiences with respect to reusability of adaptive learning resources.
