The support for teaching and learning with semantic technologies and intelligent knowledge processing has been approached by four concepts: programmed instruction, adaptive learning environments, intelligent tutoring systems, and educational recommender systems. While the demand for automated support in teaching and learning is estimated as high, the use of(More)
The EU FP7 project INTUITEL provides a novel adaptive learning environment, which is neither test-driven nor curriculum-based. Although based on ontologies, it extends these by an innovative concept of learning pathways and a subsequent ranking algorithm. The resulting environment is in line with pedagogical models and cognitive theories and will be(More)
When learners may select among different alternatives, or are guided to do so by an adaptive learning environment (ALE), it is generally meaningful to discuss the concept of different learning pathways. Pedagogically, these learning pathways may either be defined macroscopically, e.g. in terms of desired learning outcomes or competencies, or microscopically(More)
We argue that quality issues and didactical concerns of MOOCs may be overcome by relying on small Open Educational Resources, joining them into concise courses by gluing them together along predefined learning pathways with proper semantic annotations. This new approach to adaptive learning does not attempt to model the learner, but rather concentrates on(More)
