Abstract—E-Learning systems can be made more effective
through personalization and adaptivity while recommending
the learning content to learners. A comprehensive set of
attributes needs to be identified for learner categorization to
ensure personalized and adaptive content recommendation. In
this paper, a set of core attributes have been identified for
effectively profiling the learners and categorizing through
neural networks. The learning contents have been annotated
formally in ontology for recommending the personalized
contents to the learners. Performance of proposed framework is
measured in terms of accurate learner categorization, precise
recommendation of the learning contents and completeness of
Index Terms—Adaptivity, content recommender e-learning, personalization.
