Abstract: In this research we present the results of a study related to the methodological problems on developing an adaptive e-learning content. Special attention is paid to the different opportunities for adaptation of learning content in e-Learning systems. An emphasis is put on the ways of modelling and developing adaptive learning materials by presenting didactic capabilities of adaptive e-Learning systems to achieve learning objectives. Various methodological approaches are discussed to determine the learner’s parameters in order to customize the learning content. Several parameters are taken into account: learner’s preferences, learning style, level of knowledge, available learning time, specific objectives, visit history, etc.

Keywords: adaptive e-learning content, adaptive learning materials, adaptive education.
