Laura Lynch, LearnDash, 2018/11/22

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Learner Model's Utilization in the e-Learning Environments
Vija Vigale, Laila Niedrite, University of Latvia, 2018/10/29
This is quite a good paper describing the need for, creation of, and use of a learner model in support of adaptive learning. In current systems, the learner model is at the core of such systems. In conjunction with a domain mode, which maps the learning required in a field, the adaptive system employs an adaptive model to generate the activity, resource or intervention required. More...
