Abstract

Learning material and adaptive learning are the most important topics when we talk about the learning process of every student. Currently, the biggest problem is that it is not possible for university teachers to help each and every student with every minor problem they have or aspect of the teaching material they do not understand. The aim of this work is propose an adaptive e-learning platform that has three different teaching proposals. The participants are engineering students who are studying subjects of object-oriented programming in Java language and are differentiated with a profile test based on the works of Neil D. Fleming. The subject of inheritance has already been tested in four opportunities showing positive results in chi-square and hypothesis test, where students sustain that their learning process was improved.
