Publication: Using an instructional expert to mediate the locus of control in adaptive e-learning systems

This paper considers the issue of the locus of control in adaptive e-learning environments from the perspective of a new stakeholder; the instructional expert. With an ever increasing ability to gain insight into learners based on their online activities, instructors and instructional designers are poised to add value to the process of adaptation, a process normally reserved for either systems designers or the end user. This work describes the design of an e-learning system which provides automated analytics information to these experts for consideration, and then leverages the insights these experts have made as the basis for content and feature adaptation.
