Abstract: The systematic design of personalised e-learning courses so as to place emphasis on preferred ways of studying and to motivate learners to manage their own learning process poses a major challenge. To meet this challenge, the design and implementation of the 'SR-INSPIREus-Learning Framework' applying aspects of self-regulated learning (SRL) theory for modelling learning strategies that match various learning preferences and exploit the adaptive functionalities of INSPIREus, is proposed. A preliminary quasi-experimental study with comparison groups in pre/post tests and experimental and control groups was conducted in order to examine aspects of SRL (cognitive and affective domain) and learners' performance. The findings provide evidence about the potential of the framework in increasing specific aspects of SRL and students' performance.
