Purpose – This research aims to investigate how a generic web-based ITS can be created which will
adapt the training content in real time, to the needs of the individual trainee across any domain.
Design/methodology/approach – After examining the various alternatives SCORM was adopted
in this project because it provided an infrastructure that makes it possible to deliver personalised
learning dynamically using re-usable learning objects.
Findings – The results show that a system which presents a student with content that is
supplementary to an authored course should be accompanied by a tool to help the trainee’s navigation.
For such a tool, key functionality would be: first, to identify learning objects that would take the
student towards the ultimate learning goals; second, to suggest a pathway through the authored
course structure and additional learning objects to the student; and finally, to present the student with
different choices of pathway, such as fastest, most comprehensive and most popular routes.
Originality/value – This investigation has taken another approach of adapting the course by
displaying an adapted set of learning objects to the trainee, instead of using a linear course structure.
