Abstract—The ever-increasing importance of interactive features in e-learning environment with the evolution of new dimensions of Information Technology has stimulated the introduction of adaptive e-learning. Although there has been a continuous effort from the researchers in last two decades to incorporate intelligent and adaptive features within e-learning software, they are mainly ad-hoc and serves partial perspectives. Due to the absence of any uniform structure, framework or standard, different perspectives of adaptive e-learning often possess overlapping and repetitive features. This paper identifies some primary components of adaptive e-learning with their individual perspectives. It presents a brief review on the existing methodologies for the different adaptive features of these components. It also introduces a hierarchical structure of different components of adaptive e-learning, which works as a framework for this review work.
Index Terms—adaptive learning, curriculum sequencing, user modeling, adaptive navigation
