Abstract: This project aims to develop support for self-directed learning in Moodle by incorporating opportunities for reflection and self-assessment for learners. We will develop a module that will track a learner's progress and represent it in terms of important concepts taught within a course. The resulting student model will enable the sys- tem to recommend activities suited to the learner's needs and abilities. Students will be able to inspect his/her stu- dent model, which promotes reflection and deep learning. The introduction of adaptive self-directed learning capa- bilities will pave the way for the next generation of learning management systems, as currently their focus is limited to managing learning resources.
