On Application of Case-Based Reasoning to Personalise Learning

2019 Informatics in Education. An International Journal  
The paper aims to present application of Educational Data Mining and particularly Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) for students profiling and further to design a personalised intelligent learning system.  ...  The main aim here is to develop a recommender system which should help the learners to create learning units (scenarios) that are the most suitable for them.  ...  For further intelligent analysis, these classes will be as a starting point for classifying students using CBR on the basis of information perception.  ...

Application of Resource Description Framework to Personalise Learning: Systematic Review and Methodology

2017 Informatics in Education. An International Journal  
The paper is aimed to present a methodology of learning personalisation based on applying Resource Description Framework (RDF) standard model.  ...  Research results are two-fold: first, the results of systematic literature review on Linked Data, RDF "subject-predicate-object" triples, and Web Ontology Language (OWL) application in education are presented  ...  The semantic web is a collection of working together components so that a machine is able to process and understand information.  ...

The digital library: a case study in intelligent content management

Paul Warren, David Alsmeyer, John Davies
2005 Journal of Knowledge Management  
The case study will also serve as a shop window for the technology.  ...  For example, a strong lesson from our focus group was that users wish to feel in control of the technology.  ...  Information space membership and journal preferences are used to provide a personalised view of the digital library homepage, as can be seen in Figure 2 .  ...
