Abstract

Adaptive Hypermedia content offers personalization; however, (re-) using such material with regular Learning Management Systems (LMS) is not yet straightforward. Ideally, materials created once should be usable anywhere. One such vehicle for reusability is represented by e-learning standards. Thus, here we describe the extension and evaluation of My Online Teacher (MOT), an adaptive hypermedia authoring system, to which compatibility with IMS Question and Test Interoperability (IMS QTI) and IMS Content Packaging (IMS CP) was added. This way, MOT authors can use materials dedicated to learning process adaptation on any standards-compatible LMS. In this paper we evaluate the converters from MOT to IMS CP and IMS QTI via both qualitative and quantitative analyses. This paper reports our hypothetical findings, their implementations, and the joint results of the evaluations of the converters. Finally, this work describes a significant step towards the little explored avenue of adaptive collaborative systems, based on extant learning standards and popular LMS.
