Indicators help actors to organise, orientate and navigate through complex environments by providing contextual information relevant for the performance of learning tasks. In this article we analyse the requirements, present a model and an initial prototype of a software system that uses smart indicators to support learners to be more engaged in the… (More)
Personalization of learning has become a prominent issue in the educational field, at various levels. This article elaborates a different view on personalisation than what usually occurs in this area.

Learning Management Systems (LMSs) are used in many (educational) institutes to manage the learning process. Adaptive Learning Environments (ALEs) offer support for the learning process through adaptive guidance and perhaps also personalized learning material (content). GRAPPLE offers a new infrastructure that brings both together. This is done through… (More)
This paper focuses on the relevant information for collecting and presenting contextual information, its effects and impact on the learning interaction cycle, and mechanisms of controlling it. The core principle of the learning interaction cycle is the interaction of learners with their learning environment. Previous research highlights that such… (More)

In technology-enhanced learning, activity-based learner models can provide evidence for competence assessment. Such models are the foundation for learning and teaching support, such as: adaptation, assessment, and competence analytics, recommendations, and so on. This paper analyses how to construct activity-based learner models based on existing data in… (More)
The use of tags as user generated meta-data as well as the visualisation in tag clouds has recently received a lot of attention in research and practice. This paper focuses on supporting reflection of learners by using different presentation approaches of user-generated meta-data for reflection support. Previous research has shown that implicit interest… (More)
