Abstract: A pedagogical object can refer to any pedagogical component that can be used in the learning process. It could be a text, an image, a video, a web page, etc. Personalising the pedagogical content can be considered crucial. So, this can declare the need to find collaboration agreements between the pedagogical contents specialists, in order to get the collaborative development or the pedagogical content reuse. Consequently, e-learning standards and specifications give the solution, with possibilities of reuse, interoperability and customisation. Since the main goal of our research is providing an adaptive connectivist massive online open courses (cMOOC), this requires an adjustment of the pedagogical content to each learner's profile. So, an adaptive learning design has to present different learning strategies based on the process of data analysis that include previous and current experiences, learning styles and learner's profile. As a part of the intelligent system implementation, this structural design can be made by using some machine learning algorithms of classification in parallel with the IMS standard and related specifications.

Keywords: pedagogical object; massive online open course; MOOC; cMOOC; adaptive cMOOC; machine learning; intelligent platform; pedagogical content; IMS; e-learning.
