Track Description and Topics of Interest

Advanced learning technologies keep transforming what people learn, how
they learn it and the ways they access learning opportunities in formal
and informal contexts. As the educational landscape evolves, learning gets
more structured around flexible curricula that have to accommodate needs
of diverse student audiences, and educational organizations are offering
services for accessing courses, content, and resources through a variety
of platforms, devices, and learning contexts. In this framework, adapting
the educational experience to learners' preferences and needs becomes
critical in order to deliver effective technology-enhanced learning. The
challenge concerns providing an alternative to the "one-size-fits-all"
approach, taking into consideration the individual differences between
learners and the application of learning technologies in emerging learning
contexts. The aim is to maximize the learner satisfaction, learning gain
and efficiency of the learning process. Adaptation can take place both at
individual level and group/community level; intelligent and adaptive
technologies can be used to support socially-grounded online learning.

APTeL@ICALT2015 will explore different dimensions of adaptation and
personalization, including the learner modeling phase, the adaptation
mechanisms and techniques, the design and implementation challenges, the
experimental validation. A main issue will also be the impact of adaptive
and personalised learning environments in real educational (formal or
informal) contexts, how such environments can be integrated in the
educational process in order to enhance and promote learning. "What can we
adapt to?", "What can be adapted?", "How can we collect and process the
relevant data?", "What is the impact of adaptation?", "How adaptive and
personalised learning environments may promote learning in real
contexts?", "How learners of different profiles perceive
personalization?", "How can you support users develop personalized content
and courses?" are some important questions that need to be addressed.

Topics of interest cover various adaptivity and personalization issues in
technology enhanced learning, in particular:
* Personal learning environments (PLE)
* Intelligent learner and group modeling
* Adaptive learning methods and techniques
* Adaptive collaborative learning
* Personalized mobile learning applications
* Adaptive educational games
* Adaptivity and personalization in MOOCs
* Cognitive, motivational and affective aspects for personalization
* Measurement and evaluation in adaptive learning environments
* Practice and experience sharing
* Learning and teaching with adaptive and personalised learning environments
