Description & Coverage
Description:

Advances in technology are increasingly impacting the way in which curriculum is delivered and assessed. The emergence of the Internet has offered learners a new instructional delivery system that connects them with educational resources.

Advances in Web-Based Education: Personalized Learning Environments covers a wide range of factors that influence the design, use and adoption of personalized learning environments, and it shows how user and pedagogical considerations can be integrated into the design, development and implementation of adaptive hypermedia systems to create effective personalized learning environments.

Reviews and Testimonials

In Advances in Web-Based Education, a wide and international range of experts have contributed chapters which allow the reader to develop a comprehensive understanding of the challenges involved in introducing personalization technologies into web-based instruction. The book presents the state of the art in the personalized and adaptive e-learning environments, and can be used both for its introductions to key issues and also for its in-depth analyses of advanced issues. The individual chapters serve as a rich and timely source of ideas and techniques relevant to those seeking solutions to the practical challenges of personalizing e-learning."

– Donald Peterson, Institute of Education, University of London, UK

A unique, detailed, and sophisticated introduction to state of the art personalization technologies for e-learning systems, Advances in Web-Based Education provides a number of novel results in learning modeling, instructional design, and [content] development. It explains how adaptive techniques can be integrated into existing web-base instructional and mobile learning. This is an essential resource for those wishing to develop real life implementations of personalized e-learning systems.

– Michael N. Vrahatis, University of Patras Artificial Intelligence Research Center, Greece

Advances in Web-Based Education: Personalized Learning Environments brings together contributors from around the world to take the next step in focusing on personalization in the online learning environment. This volume definitely makes an important contribution to the field.

– Julie Shen, California State Polytechnic University, USA, in Education Libraries Volume 29, Number 1 (Summer 2006)

Advances in Web-Based Education: Personalized Learning Environments is an interesting book that makes a useful contribution to knowledge in the fields of intelligent tutoring systems, student modelling, and web-based instruction. This text would therefore make very useful reading for anyone involved in research and development within the sphere of e-learning.

– Phillip Barker, University of Teesside, UK, in The Electronic Library Volume 25, Number 1 (2007)

"Advances in Web-Based Education is a collection of 14 chapters in four sections, with each chapter written by one or more academics from universities around the globe."

– Technical Communication, Vol. 53, No. 4 (2006)

A unique, detailed, and sophisticated introduction to state of the art personalization for e-learning systems. It provides a number of novel results in learner modeling, instructional design, and [content] development.
