Individualized e-Learning System: Agent for Learning Mathematics in Primary Education in Thailand
At present e-Learning systems are widely introduced in education. There are various systems developed and implemente 1 d for learners. However, most of these systems are static and inflexible. These traditional systems are developed on the basis of "one-size-fit-all". They cannot be adjusted to fit the individual's capability. In this paper the user-centric approach is applied to improve the performance, effectiveness and usability of the system. This paper proposes an agent for learning mathematics in primary education. This agent provides material for both teachers and students. For teachers, it gives advice in preparing teaching materials and methods based on student background. These recommendations can be procedures such as specific activities, or content including lessons in mathematics. For students, the system provides lessons to them as a result of the pretest for mathematics skills. The system was examined by three groups including teachers, software developers and education students. Descriptive analysis was performed and results indicate that the system was acceptable and satisfactory. Further research is suggested.
