The paper below presents an Integral User Model which supports the development of Adaptive Virtual Learning Environment. This User Integral Model is conformed by three dimensions: user's characteristics, interactions and context. Each one of these dimensions let us address three issues in adaptive systems. The user’s characteristics are used to support adaptive presentation. The interactions are used to support adaptive activities and context is used for device adaptation. In order to arise this level of personalization, we have been developed a prototype which explore the first dimension. This prototype uses a Multi-Agent System for adding adaptive to an existent Learning Management Systems (dotLRN). To deal with the interoperability issue E-learning specifications and standards have been used; IMS-LD, IMS-QTI, IMS-RDCEO and IEEE/LOM. The adaptation is based on an overlay model that notices the competence level of the student by building a student model. This student model is used to deliver to students the best resource in an Unit of Learning design with IMS-LD.
