Abstract

This paper presents an initial evaluation of different forms of adaptation based on learning style and knowledge level, which were implemented in an adaptive e-learning system. An experiment conducted in a learning context with 174 participants produced significant results in terms of learning gain. They indicate that adaptation based on both learning style and knowledge level yields significantly better learning gain than adaptation based on learning style only, and better than adaptation based on knowledge level only.
