Recent researches have demonstrated the importance of concept map and its versatile applications especially in e-Learning. For example, while designing adaptive learning materials, designers need to refer to the concept map of a subject domain. Moreover, concept maps can show the whole picture and core knowledge about a subject domain. Research from(More)
Typical learning management systems consider only little or, in most cases, no adaptivity. In this paper, we introduce an adaptive mechanism which enables such systems to provide students with courses that fit their individual learning styles. The adaptive mechanism is based on an advanced student modelling approach which identifies learning styles by(More)
2 Why shall we use learning styles? • Learners have different learning styles • Considering learning styles has potential to make learning easier for learners – By making students aware of their learning styles as well as the related stengths and weaknesses – By providing students with learning material that fits their learning styles 3 How to identify(More)
Over the next 10 years, we anticipate that personal, portable, wirelessly-networked technologies will become ubiquitous in the lives of learners — indeed, in many countries, this is already a reality. We see that ready-to-hand access creates the potential for a new phase in the evolution of technology-enhanced learning (TEL), characterized by " seamless(More)

* Considering learning styles in technology enhanced learning seems to be a promising concept for making learning easier for students. However, contradictory opinions exist on this issue. In this paper, we aim at investigating the possible benefits of providing students with courses that fit their learning styles based on the Felder-Silverman learning style(More)
Increasing organizations and educational institutions have implemented virtual learning communities to encourage knowledge sharing. However, this task can not be accomplished simply by grouping people together and telling them " sharing your knowledge will make you learn better ". This research attempts to examine the factors influencing knowledge sharing(More)
