There are many different designs for eLearning on the Internet. The static webpage design can only provide fixed learning materials. The dynamic webpage design can change the page data depending on the students’ input. The intelligent webpage design records students ’learning results for their knowledge level analysis and provides sequence and format to test the students for practicing and training accordingly. A student centered model enables the system to provide customized course contents and study guidance to individual student. The web-based application helps students of all levels with different educational background to achieve their learning goals effectively. This paper provides an eLearning system with intelligent dynamic web pages customized to each student’s effective learning style in SQL (Structural Query Language) as a practical relational database language in the syllabus of an undergraduate Database Systems course.
