The rapid development of wireless infrastructure and wide use of mobile devices in our daily life has a major impact on our way of learning using computing technology. Particularly, learning a new language is a challenging task for researchers. Furthermore, adaptive services is nowadays an important research topic in the field of web-based and mobile learning systems as there are no fixed learning path which are appropriate for all learners. However, most studies in this field have only focused…

An adaptive e-learning Decision support system

This study presents a novel ontology-based approach to design an e-learning Decision support system which includes major adaptive features and indicates that the proposed system improved learning effectiveness and learner satisfaction, particularly in its adaptive capabilities.

A model for learning objects adaptation in light of mobile and context-aware computing

The main goal of this article is to propose EduAdapt, an architectural model for the adaptation of learning objects considering device characteristics, learning style and other student’s context information, using inferences and rules in a proposed ontology, named OntoAdapt.

An adaptable and personalised E-learning system applied to computer science Programmes design

The development of an architecture for A Personalised and Adaptable E-Learning System (APELS) that attempts to contribute to advancements in this field is described.

An approach for the automatic generation af a content type of a semantic learning object from ontology

An original approach to generate automatically from ontologies in the field of education, a type of content (XML Schema) for the semantic creating a SQL language LO in a native format XML, which may be subsequently adapted to the display of the mobile devices.

Developing a Mobile Learning Application with LIS Discipline Ontology

In this study, library and information science was used as the example for developing discipline-oriented LIS Ontology, and the ORCID system API was employed to integrate teachers’ English publications included in the Scopus database in order to develop a learning APP for the discipline.

A semantic-based ontology mapping – information retrieval for mobile learning resources

An ontology-based M-Learning framework is introduced to reduce the retrieval rate of irrelevant information from the service repository and provides the relevant services to the requested user, which reduces the processing time and computation complexity.

Semantic Rule-based Approach for Supporting Personalised Adaptive E-Learning

An innovative semantic rule-based approach to dynamically generate personalised learning content utilising reusable pieces of learning content is proposed, which describes an ontology-based engine that composes adapted learning experiences according to learner’s interaction with the system and learner's characteristics.

Evolution of Distance Education from Asynchronous Model to Adaptive Mobile Model

The overall purpose of adaptive mobile education is to provide better understanding and improve learning capacity and it provides personalization for students and facilitates the effective use of mobile education.

Learning adaptivity in support of flipped learning: An ontological problem‐solving approach

This study aims to create a learning adaptivity design to support effective learning in the flipped individual learning space in which the teacher is absent, and proposes a conceptual model of teaching as a function of the knowledge triad of Guideline, Teaching Activity, and Material.

A Contribution to the Establishment of Reference Architectures for Mobile Learning Environments

The proposed architecture, named Ref-mLearning, aims to contribute to the evolution, reuse, and interoperability of m-learning environments, enabling an increase in quality and cost reduction during their development, due to the use of features provided by service-oriented architecture.



Personalised mobile learning system based on item response theory

This paper presents an approach to designing a personalised learning system by analysing the ability of the learner based on Items Response Theory and in the proposed system user profile is modelled based on profile ontology.
