Abstract: One of the key problems in developing standard based adaptive courses is the complexity involved in the design phase, especially when establishing the hooks for the dynamic modelling to be performed at runtime. This is particularly critical when the courses are based on adaptation-oriented learning scenarios, where the full eLearning cycle (design, publication, use and auditing) is considered. Based on the problems we experienced in developing such scenarios with a reusable, platform independent, objective-based approach in the aLFanet project we have established an alternative framework in the ADAPTAPlan project, which focuses on dynamically generating learning design templates with the support of user modelling, planning and machine learning techniques. In particular, in this paper we describe the problems we are tackling and how we are relaxing the design work by automatically building the IMS learning design of the course from a simplified set of data required from the course authors.
