Personalisation research - derived from elaborated research

The prototype called "Personal Reader" is an experimental environment supporting personalized learning based on semantic web technologies. The prototype implements several methods needed for personalization suitable for an environment based on a fixed set of documents (a closed corpus) plus personalized context sensitive information from the semantic web. The Personal Reader embeds learning resources in a personalized context, providing a local context within a course or corpus, as well as a global context with references to external resources.

Information model standards and open specifications like the IMS and IEEE ones recognized by the e-Learning community have driven development of schemas for several aspects of learning resources like learning objects, activities, assessments, learners, and portfolios. The ELENA consortium trialled the schemas in personalization contexts and the trials resulted in guidelines how to use standards in personalizing learning resources, search for them and navigation in them. The trials are supported by several prototypes like personal reader and personalized search.
