User Interaction-framework for Adaptive ERP Education

Dirk Peters, Marc Petersen, Jorge Marx Gómez


Current methods used to learn and understand information systems in a company or in the field of higher education are not sufficient when it is compared to the capabilities of today’s technologies. The most common method used to teach and learn the practical issues of an information system is with the help of case studies. However, the learning material in a case study provided to the learner is neither technologically-enhanced nor adapted to the individual knowledge background and learning preferences of a single, individual learner in a group. Adaptive learning environments offer a sufficient way to teach and learn the usage of an information system while it tracks user interactions and adapts the learning content towards the learner’s performance. Thus, the lacking integration of an adaptive learning environment with the target information system is a major issue. In this contribution, we are presenting a developed user interaction-framework (UIF) for web-based information systems (WBIS) in order to generate individual tasks for each single learner depending on his specific performance during a hands-on learning process.
