Learner Model in Adaptive Learning
Formerly, Learning Management Systems (LMS) support well for interaction between learner and lesson, learner and teacher. However, every student has individual features such as: knowledge, goal, experience, interest, background. So, there is emergent demand for tailoring learning material (lesson, exercise, test) to each person. This is learning personalized process and system which supports such process was called Adaptive Learning System. Therefore, learning adaptive system is able to change its action to provide both learning content and pedagogic environment/method for student. Adaptive systems base on the "Description of learner's properties" called learner model. The process which gathers information to build up learner model and update it was named: learner modeling. Adaptive system tunes learning material & teaching method to learner model.
