Abstract—Supporting user friendly intelligible and
comprehensive explanations in context-based, adaptive systems
is a big challenge. They are important for a personalized system
to support user acceptance and user trust. In cases, where
privacy laws like the General Data Protection Regulation
(GDPR) are affected, it’s even more challenging. GDPR e. g.
demands explanations of data usages, i. e. explanations where
and for what purpose personal data is being processed.
Currently, users cannot retrace the usage and the storage of
their personal data in context-based adaptive collaboration
environments. We address the aforementioned problem by
developing a context-based adaptive platform linked to an
adaptive personalized learning environment (APLE) to support
learners with intelligible, comprehensible explanations of
