|Web-based education is currently a hot research and development area. Benefits of Web-based education are clear at hand: learners from all over the world can enroll in learning activities, communicate with other students or teachers, can discuss and control their learning progress - solely based on an internet-capable computer. A challenging research goal is to tailor the access to web-based education systems to the individual learners' needs, as determined by such factors as their previous knowledge on the subject, their learning style, their general attitude and/or their cultural or linguistic background. A number of Web-based adaptive and intelligent systems have been developed over the last 5 years. However, a larger variety of innovative systems can still be created and evaluated to provide a real difference in E-Learning.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for the discussion of recent trends and perspectives in adaptive systems for web-based education, and thus to continue the series of workshops on this topic held at past conferences.
