Introduction What is learning? Scholars and philosophers have investigated and debated myriad nuances of this pithy question and will continue to explore it as technology becomes more enmeshed in the human experience. On one hand, we have learned a great deal about learning; on the other hand, learning theories and teaching methods must evolve in concert with our brains as technology mediates our interaction with an increasingly complex, information-rich world. Technology has transformed… 
Board 69: Do Adaptive Lessons for Pre-class Experience Improve Flipped Learning?
To improve the quality of the pre-class activities for his numerical methods flipped classroom, the second author developed adaptive lessons using the Smart Sparrow platform under a current NSF grant, which provided students with a personalized path for preparation that involved multiple representations such as lecture videos, text, questions, and simulations.
A Preliminary Study Using Academagogy to Uncover the Problems That Block Adult Online Learner Engagement
Personalisation plays a vital role in the engagement of adult learners in online learning environments. Historically, research has focused on applying adaptive technologies, including Artificial
Personalized Learning for Adults: An Emerging Andragogy
Recent research has revealed benefits to using technology to personalize and adapt a learning experience to the learner’s preferences, habits, and developing expertise (Cardona et al. in 2013 IEEE
Transformative and Innovative Pedagogies in Education
Understanding the paradigm of transformative learning and pedagogies calls for delving deep into various nuances the concept holds. It begs of the readers to accept that transformative learning
Designing an Adaptive Learning Environment to Improve Writing Skills and Usability for EFL Students at the Faculty of Education
The results indicated that the adaptive online learning environment led to developing EFL students' writing skills and that the students found the environment usable for learning and interacting with fellows and instructor.
Assessment and Learning in Knowledge Spaces (ALEKS) Adaptive System Impact on Students’ Perception and Self-Regulated Learning Skills
The results showed a significant decline in students’ SRL skills score while working with ALEKS, and the survey’s qualitative analysis showed various possible factors contributing to the decline, including lack of motivation, system complexity, hard penalty, lack of social presence, and lack of system practicality.
From ancient times, it was observed that students react differently when they interact with a teacher, namely, some need encouragement, other have to be scowled, others can concentrate better whereas
Towards Open Learner Models Including the Flow State
A functional and technical architecture (comprising a Domain Model, a Flow Model, and an Open Learner Model for MOOC in a Lifelong Learning context) accounting for the learner's Flow state is proposed.
Factors Contributing to Collaborative Game-Based Learning (CGBL) Effectiveness
In facing the Covid-19 pandemic, the teaching and learning landscape in Malaysian schools has also changed accordingly. The Ministry of Education has introduced Teaching and Learning at Home to take
Implementation of adaptive learning at higher education institutions by means of Moodle LMS
The educational trend that is able to put into practice the above mentioned requirements is blended learning as it has a range of advantages such as usability, consideration of individual abilities, additional materials introduction, activities monitoring.


Learning Styles
It is concluded that at present, there is no adequate evidence base to justify incorporating learning-styles assessments into general educational practice and limited education resources would better be devoted to adopting other educational practices that have a strong evidence base.
Adaptive Instructional Systems
Adaptive instruction refers to educational interventions aimed at effectively accommodating individual differences in students while helping each student develop the knowledge and skills required to learn a task.
Adaptive item-based learning environments based on the item response theory: possibilities and challenges
It is concluded that applying IRT seems to be a viable solution for adaptive item selection in item-based ITSs provided that some modifications are implemented.

Beyond the Two Disciplines of Scientific Psychology.
The historic separation of experimental psychology from the study of individual differences impeded psychological research, So I argued when last I had occasion to address the APA audience (Cronbach,
Towards a computationally intelligent lesson adaptation for a distance learning course
A neuro-fuzzy approach is introduced to implement lesson adaptation in a Web-based course and allows the generation of the content of a hypermedia page from pieces of educational material based on goal-oriented teaching and making use of the background knowledge of the learner.
