AbstractAs learning environments are gaining in features and in complexity, the e-learning industry is more and more interested in features easing teachers’ work. Learning design being a critical and time consuming task could be facilitated by intelligent components helping teachers build their learning activities. The Intelligent Learning Design Recommendation System (ILD-RS) is such a software component, designed to recommend learning paths during the learning design phase in a Learning Management System (LMS). Although ILD-RS exploits several parameters which are sometimes subject to controversy, such as learning styles and teaching styles, the main interest of the component lies on its algorithm based on Markov decision processes that takes into account the teacher’s use to refine its accuracy.
