  • Abstract

    Taking into account that each new day an amount of daily processed data grows exponentially, it is obvious that knowledge society needs flexible, effective and high performing tools to retrieve, learn and apply necessary information. Learning management systems become more and more intelligent and adaptive. Learning analytics instruments give course developers a possibility to assess and analyze learners’ activities and behavior patterns within e-learning environment, allowing to propose them personalized self-paced learning path and types of learning objects. This paper discusses challenges in development of adaptive learning management system and outlines its prospective models and properties.
