Recent advances in technology have facilitated the use of e-learning in education and made personalisation possible in various ways. These developments have been supported by the
widespread availability of learning management systems (LMS). In educational establishments an LMS is often only used to support the enhancement of classroom or lecture-based teaching, however it is increasingly being used to provide e-learning only courses (Kim, Jung, Lim, Kim, Noh, 2009). Most learning management systems place considerable emphasis on delivering and managing learning content but generally add little or no value to the learning process and its personalisation(Junqi, Zhengbing, Zongkai, Yumei, 2009).
In this paper, the authors will describe how personalisation is supported through a process of
profiling individual learning styles using the Felder-Silverman framework and implemented through the Learning Activity Management System (LAMS).Whilst results are still to be analysed, the authors discuss the design of the subsequent learning system which will generate data and enable a comparison of students who followed a pathway based on the free-choice of learning materials with students who followed a pathway that incorporating structured ‘personalised’ learning materials based on the learners’ predetermined learning style.
