AbstractAbstract. Vocational training is a good application field for adaptive learning environments, as learner pre-knowledge is diverse, learning objectives can be derived from job roles and employers value focusing on most important parts to shorten learning times. An adaptive web based training multimedia course on business English was created with a learning time of about 5 hours. It is used to demonstrate adaptive learning concepts to learners, authors and training providers. It is group-based in the sense of job roles. Learning content is recommended based on competency needs and available knowledge. Presentation media is selected based on display platform (PC, mobile phone). Learning preferences determine the selection of dialogue forms. The authoring of the course with the AHA! adaptive learning environment is also described as well as how AHA! could be extended to better support this kind of adaptive learning.
