Learning, an active cognitive activity, differs from one learner to another. This therefore suggests the need for personalized learning. Recommender systems in this context can be seen as a resourceful tool to provide appropriate learning materials that are tailored to the (personalized) learning needs and goals of the learner; and also to enhance learning. The development of personalized recommender systems typically involves a \textit{learner model} component, which is used to capture and store the personal information, preferences and other characteristics of the learner. While reading, learners engage in number of metacognitive activities e.g. text marking/creating highlights. These metacognitive interactions could serve as useful information for the learner model, to achieve personalization. In addition, the use of a probabilistic topic modeling based document retrieval (Latent Dirichlet Indexing) method makes it possible to provide finer grained multiple but topically related documents to facilitate learning. The current study investigates the effectiveness of using the highlights (a metacognitive activity) a learner makes while reading, as a preference elicitation method for the learner model. It also investigates the use of the Latent Dirichlet Indexing model to provide relevant recommendation of textual learning materials that enhance the personalized learning experiences of learners in a task-oriented activity. The experimental design allows the comparison of the performance, learner experience, learner interaction, and a number of other subjective analysis measures among two groups conditions; where one group receives recommendations based on the proposed methodology, and the second group receive random recommendations. The recommender system is integrated with nStudy, an online learning platform that provides a number of annotation tools (e.g. highlighting, tags) that support metacognitive activities. Findings show that the highlights learners create while reading serve as an appropriate input mechanism to guide personalized learning recommendations. Specifically, there was a significant difference in the learners' evaluation of the recommendation quality and accuracy between the two group conditions. The findings revealed that the learners in the experimental had positive perception of the recommendation quality and accuracy, which is also correlated to the user experience, and interaction.

Personalization has proved to achieve better learning outcomes by adapting to specific learners’ needs, interests, and/or preferences. Traditionally, most personalized learning software systems focused on formal learning. However, learning personalization is not only desirable for formal learning, it is also required for informal learning, which is self-directed, does not follow a specified curriculum, and does not lead to formal qualifications. Wikis among other informal learning platforms are found to attract an increasing attention for informal learning, especially Wikipedia. The nature of wikis enables learners to freely navigate the learning environment and independently construct knowledge without being forced to follow a predefined learning path in accordance with the constructivist learning theory. Nevertheless, navigation on information wikis suffer from several limitations. To support informal learning on Wikipedia and similar environments, it is important to provide easy and fast access to relevant content. Recommendation systems (RSs) have long been used to effectively provide useful recommendations in different technology enhanced learning (TEL) contexts. However, the massive diversity of unstructured content as well as user base on such information oriented websites poses major challenges when designing recommendation models for similar environments. In addition to these challenges, evaluation of TEL recommender systems for informal learning is rather a challenging activity due to the inherent difficulty in measuring the impact of recommendations on informal learning with the absence of formal assessment and commonly used learning analytics. In this research, a personalized content recommendation framework (PCRF) for information wikis as well as an evaluation framework that can be used to evaluate the impact of personalized content recommendations on informal learning from wikis are proposed. The presented recommendation framework models learners’ interests by continuously extrapolating topical navigation graphs from learners’ free navigation and applying graph structural analysis algorithms to extract interesting topics for individual users. Then, it integrates learners’ interest models with fuzzy thesauri for personalized content recommendations. Our evaluation approach encompasses two main activities. First, the impact of personalized recommendations on informal learning is evaluated by assessing conceptual knowledge in users’ feedback. Second, web analytics data is analyzed to get an insight into users’ progress and focus throughout the test session. Our evaluation revealed that PCRF generates highly relevant recommendations that are adaptive to changes in user’s interest using the HARD model with rank-based mean average precision ([email protected]) scores ranging between 100% and 86.4%. In addition, evaluation of informal learning revealed that users who used Wikipedia with personalized support could achieve higher scores on conceptual knowledge assessment with average score of 14.9 compared to 10.0 for the students who used the encyclopedia without any recommendations. The analysis of web analytics data show that users who used Wikipedia with personalized recommendations visited larger number of relevant pages compared to the control group, 644 vs 226 respectively. In addition, they were also able to make use of a larger number of concepts and were able to make comparisons and state relations between concepts.

The recent passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) presents new opportunities and greater flexibility in efforts to personalize learning for all children. The Handbook on Personalized Learning for States, Districts, and Schools provides insight and guidance on maximizing that new flexibility. Produced by the Center on Innovations in Learning (CIL), one of seven national content centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education, this volume suggests how teachers can enhance personalized learning by cultivating relationships with students and their families to better understand a child’s learning and motivation. Personalized learning also encourages the development of students’ metacognitive, social, and emotional competencies, thereby fostering students’ self?direction in their own education, one aimed at mastery of knowledge and skills and readiness for career and college. Chapters address topics across the landscape of personalized learning, including co?designing instruction and learning pathways with students; variation in the time, place, and pace of learning, including flipped and blended classrooms; and using technology to manage and analyze the learning process. The Handbook’s chapters include Action Principles to guide states, districts, and schools in personalizing learning.
