    Competence-based Knowledge Structures for Personalised Learning

    1st International ELeGI Conference on Advanced Technology for Enhanced Learning

    Vico Equense (Naples), Italy. 15 - 16 March 2005


    Jürgen Heller, Birgit Mayer, Cord Hockemeyer & Dietrich Albert


    The ELeGI project focuses on integrating technology-enhanced learning methodologies into a pedagogy-driven and service-oriented architecture based on Grid technology. It aims at a system that is capable of realising personalised, adaptive, and experiential learning.

    This requires to have available a framework that, on the one hand, allows for representing existing domain knowledge, and, on the other hand, provides a representation of the learner's current state of knowledge. It is shown that a competence-based extension of Knowledge Space Theory provides a representation of the conceptual organization of a domain that not only allows for an adaptive assessment of an individual's knowledge, but also for generating personalised learning paths.

    The discussion of this framework emphasizes its application within an open distributed service model, and in the context of Virtual Scientific Experiments.
