Preface to the Special Issue on Creating and Improving Adaptive Learning: Smart Authoring Tools and Processes
Cyberlearning technologies increasingly seek to offer personalized learning experiences via adaptive systems that customize pedagogy, content, feedback, pace, and tone according to the just-in-time needs of a learner. However, it is historically difficult to 1) create these smart learning environments, 2) continuously improve them based on student learning data, 3) facilitate their alignment with learning objectives and government standards, and 4) customize them to particular environments or users. This special issue of the International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education (IJAIED), entitled “Creating and Improving Adaptive Learning: Smart Authoring Tools and Processes,” focuses on authoring approaches used to create, improve, align, and customize adaptive learning environments.
