Adaptivity in ProPer: An Adaptive SCORM Compliant LMS
Kazanidis, Ioannis; Satratzemi, Maya
International Journal of Distance Education Technologies, v7 n2 p44-62 Apr-Jun 2009
Adaptive Educational Hypermedia Systems provide personalized educational content to learners. However most of them do not support the functionality of Learning Management Systems (LMS) and the reusability of their courses is hard work. On the other hand some LMS support SCORM specifications but do not provide adaptive features. This article presents ProPer, a LMS that conforms to SCORM specifications and provides adaptive hypermedia courses. ProPer manages and delivers SCORM compliant courses and personalizes them according to learner's knowledge, goals and personal characteristics. In addition learner's progress and behavior is monitored and useful feedback is returned to tutors. ProPer will be used for an adaptive Java Programming course distribution to CS1 students. Statistical feedback will be gathered by tutors in order to improve course effectiveness. The technology background is briefly given and the system's architecture and functionality are analyzed.
