Personalized eLearning consists of 4 blocks:

• Students’ individuality
• Course content
• eLearning paths
• Feedback

Students’ individuality and course content are interconnected. eLearning becomes more effective by adjusting eCourse content to visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning styles:

• An eLearning course tailored for visual learners should be full of graphs, charts, written directions, and illustrations to help learners to memorize the data.

• Auditory learners will succeed with eCourses, where the information is presented via recorded lectures, audio-books, and videos. A good point is presenting a brief course summary in the beginning of each course.

• Kinesthetic learners will appreciate engaging exercises, discussions, and researches. Today many Learning Management Systems offer social platforms integration that can help including JoomlaLMS , JomSocial for Joomla!, CMS or WordPress equivalent LearnDash, and BuddyPress.

Every teacher needs to carefully research which personalized learning model to adopt before implementing a personalization concept. As technology, innovation, and education continues to change rapidly, personalized eLearning should become part of the mainstream.
