Abstract

This paper describes the adaptive group formation and collaboration support, and interactive problem solving support offered by our Web-based adaptive educational hypermedia system called MATHEMA. The general goal of our system is to support high school students, through a constructivist environment, to learn physics (electromagnetism) and to overcome their possible misconceptions and learning difficulties. In the adaptive group formation and collaboration support the system automatically forms matching candidate mates, for a certain student, taking into account the concrete or abstract dimension of their learning style, as it is identified by a specific questionnaire applied by the system. Through the interactive problem solving the system supports the students in solving problems, individually and/or collaboratively, especially through an activity designed according to explorations and guided discovery teaching methodologies.
