This paper proposes an approach to dynamically compose an adaptive curriculum for e-learning based on a topic-centered resource space. By exploiting the semantic relationships that characterize learning objects (LOs) and learner profile, the approach dynamically selects, sequences, and links learning resources into a coherent, individualized curriculum to address learners’ focused learning needs. We developed an active learning system with semantic support for learners to access and navigate through learning resources in an efficient and personalized manner, while providing facilities for instructors to manipulate the structured learning resources via a convenient visual interface.
