Abstract

Abstract: Adaptive learning systems have increased in popularity offering the potential of providing personalised learning material to match individual learner’s needs and preferences. Existing adaptive systems have been mostly in English aimed at a Western learning environment. This paper reports on the development and initial trial of the first Arabic version of an adaptive learning system building on a validated Arabic translation of the Felder and Soloman ILS (Index of Learning Styles) instrument. The Teacher Assisting and Subject Adaptive Material (TASAM) System is used by Arabic speaking undergraduate students on a Statistics course at the King Abdul Aziz University in Saudi Arabia. The paper discusses the practicality of presenting learning material differently to meet the learning styles of individuals and, discusses issues of evaluation and how to measure effectiveness of adaptive learning systems.
