Personalized adaptive systems rely heavily on the learning style and the learner's behavior. Due to traditional teaching methods and high learner/teacher ratios, a teacher faces great obstacles in the classroom. In these methods, teachers deliver the content and learners just receive it. Moreover, teachers can't cope with the individual differences among learners. This weakness may be attributed to various reasons such as the high number of learners accommodated in each classroom and the low teaching skills of the teacher himself/herself, Therefore, identifying learning styles is a critical step in understanding how to improve the learning process.
