Abstract: Adaptive human learning systems (AHLSs) are important tools to personalise learning. However, the used domain representation formalisms lack the needed precision and flexibility those make the domains efficiently adaptable and intensively reusable. To address this issue, we propose a component based knowledge domain for an AHLS that aims to improve the adapting efficiency and provides intensive reuse of the pre-built (sub) knowledge domains. To show the feasibility and the benefits of the proposed AHLS, a prototype that experiments the explanation variants method is implemented. So, unlike the other, our AHLS achieves the adapted learning by (re)selecting and sequencing the appropriate linear combination of the component variants explaining the corresponding concepts. Also, as a more challenging task, to get a compromised solution of the conflicting learning goals and to reduce the substantial overhead, the adapting is formulated as a multi-objective component variants selection problem and it is implemented using Genetic Algorithms.
