Proceedings of the International Workshop on Personalization Approaches in Learning Environments
The International Workshop on Personalization Approaches in Learning Environments (PALE) is the result of merging the experience and background of three workshops focused on applying user modeling, personalization and adaptation in learning environments. Each of them has been organized as a learning café following the corresponding methodology and aiming to provide an answer to the question “Which approaches can be followed to personalize learning environments?” from different perspectives, as follows: (1) APLEC: Adaptation and Personalization in E-B/Learning using Pedagogic Conversational Agents. It is focused on the open issues in interactive learning environments that build the knowledge with the student through a set of interactions, such as in natural language by using animated Pedagogic Conversational Agents (PCAs). (2) ROLE: Personalizing Responsive Open Learning Environments. It is focused on the open issues in responsive open learning environments that permit personalization of the entire learning environment and its functionalities, i.e. individualization of its components and their adjustment or replacement by alternative solutions. (3) TUMAS-A: Towards User Modeling and Adaptive Systems for All. It is focused on the open issues in inclusive learning environments to provide a personalized, accessible and ubiquitous support for their users (learners, facilitators, professors) using the appropriate technologies and standards as well as the evaluation procedures that can measure the impact of the personalized and inclusive support for all, but considering their individual and evolving needs, in their particular context.
Held in conjunction with the 19th User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization conference (UMAP 2011), Girona, Spain, July 15, 2011.
