Learning objects and personalized learning path in e-learning platforms


This paper focuses on the creation of personalized learning paths. The Intelligent Web Teacher (IWT) platform implements suitable algorithms for engineering education, allowing the creation of such paths. Generation of personalised learning paths requires the availability of a wide range of different learning objects explaining a given concept of the knowledge domain.
