Abstract: In this paper, an intelligent mechanism (ICALM) that allows an adaptive learning system to create and adapt dynamically the learning material on the fly, is presented. ICALM takes into consideration each time the needs and abilities of each individual learner and adapts the learning material that is addressed to the learner at three levels. These three levels are: 1) knowledge level, 2) content, 3) display mode. The presented intelligent mechanism uses artificial neural networks, a method of multi- criteria decision analysis and machine learning techniques. The presented mechanism has been incorporated in two adaptive e-learning systems and was fully evaluated through questionnaire and t-test. The evaluation results are very encouraging showing that ICALM provides great assistance to learners in a computer-aided instruction environment.


Keywords: Adaptivity, Adaptive learning material, Intelligent tutoring systems, Adaptive learning system, Learning style, Machine learning, Artificial neural network.
