International Workshop on Personalization Approaches in Learning Environments
The workshop "PALE 2011" is held in the context of the User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization Conference UMAP.
The benefits of the personalization and adaptation of computer applications have been widely reported both in e-learning, i.e. the use of electronic media to teach or assess, or otherwise support learning;, and b-learning, i.e. to combine traditional face-to-face instruction with electronic media (blended learning).
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 modelling, personalization and adaptation in learning environments (see workshop history for details). Each of them focused on very specific topics, as follows:
- APLEC: Adaptation and Personalization in E-B/Learning using Pedagogic Conversational Agents
- ROLE: Personalizing Responsive Open Learning Environments
- TUMAS-A: Towards User Modeling and Adaptive Systems for All
