Abstract: Personalization is more than ever the must feature’s requirement a system needs to comply this days. One can find in many areas online systems which have as a goal to provide each individual user with their potential needs, or desire. To achieve this goal they need to rely on a good recommendation system. Hence, recommendation systems must work under the assumption that one’s need, could also be applied to someone else who has similar desire, tastes, or necessities. So, we present in this paper a system for recommending students extra activities accordingly to their individual needs. The additional assumption is that a promptly reply and tailored guidance in each step of the way of their learning process improve their chances of success. We propose the use of the kNN algorithm to assign activities to students as much similar as possible an expert would as well assign. The results are promising as we are able to mimic human decisions 90.0% of the time.
